10 bucks off a slightly stronger PSU, same brand.

I'd also recommend 2 gigs(ram)- its always worth it and dual cores need extra memory for full potential, a gig is "just enough".

you can get lemons no matter what brand.... the parts will works together and should do you well... I would upgrade the ram when you have the change though... 2GB is becoming the standard no-a-days and will be so when future OS's come out.
