I'd seriously get a different psu, one's that come with the case are bad usually, and wont be able to power that system.
So you should get like an Antec Smartpower 500w or something.
otherwise it looks awesome, except it doesn't have a mobo lol.

Are you going to OC at some point? You could spend alittle extra and buy a 3700+ with 1mb of L2. That PSU is going to need to be changed but other than that and needing a mobo it looks good.

The mobo, short for motherboard is the main component of a computer. Without it nothing will work.
