with a 8800gt you should be able to put a lot of settings on high (not very high). Because I can put everything on medium @ 1280x1024 using a 7900gs, x2 3800 and 1gb of ram.

I think everyone has covered the "suspect" areas, like the psu etc, all id say is you dont need the kettle type power lead, it will come with the power supply.
But yeah you definatly need to change the psu, especially since the pc your building is high spec and will need alot of power, i wouldnt trust an own brand unit.
This should do you Corsair HX Series 520W Modular PSU - ATX12V v2.2 APFC - Ebuyer bit more expensive than your other but its worth buying a decent psu trust me.
Hard drive Seagate ST3320620A 320GB Hard Drive 7200RPM 16MB Cache - OEM - Ebuyer if thats not big enough choose a bigger one of the same brand.
Graphics card is from Scan because Ebuyer dont stock the 8800GT yet for some reason! Computer hardware and software at amazing prices, available online from Scan Computers UK
Again more expensive but with the other things people have told you that can get the price down, and like someone else said if your going to be playing Crysis a 8600 will simply NOT cut it

Newegg.com - Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 ST3500320AS 500GB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive - OEM
7200.11. Fast drive great price. Dunno if that 320 is 7200.11.

course the WD is fine as well.
