The 4870 has to have 450W, so you are good.

The build looks good, but I would go with this RAM.

Better reviews, mainly. OCZ's RAM has been having troubles lately with compatibility with various boards. Kingston is still solid. G.Skill is another good one.

Swap the RAM and take this combo. Same GFX card, but better savings.
