All good choices, though the power supply is a bit much. Go for the Corsair 650TX if you plan on adding another GPU in future, Corsair 550VX if you don't. Just saves you a bit of money is all

And personally I'd go for at least a 750GB hard drive, but that's personal preference really.

agreed. I'd go for the 650TX even if you're not planning to and another GPU right now anyway, always nice to keep your options open.
