You have to supply complete information before you can get good results.
Now I thought you said you budget was $500 with a monitor? Like two other people said, you haven't listed a monitor. That's gonna be at least another $100 if you don't get anything extravagant. Either you raise your budget so you can get a monitor or you can't get that build.
Edit: Ok, your post beat mine.
The psu has a fan on its side? Are you sure you don't mean the case?
A lot of cheap psu's suck, and I bet that non-branded one is cheap and is likely to die on you and it could take the rest of your system with it. You don't want this to happen. Try Antec, Corsair, or PC Power & Cooling.
I've never heard of that gpu brand. The big ones that people like are XFX, eVGA, and maybe BFG for Nvidia. There are others ones that aren't bad such as MSI.
Yeah, Quads will be here in two years still. I'm sure the prices will be similar to what Core 2 duos are now, probably a little cheaper.
