I would get a more reputable brand PSU like Corsair or Antec. Everything else looks good.

I stand for my suggestion, but it's only a suggestion so get whatever you want...

I just did a very similar build yesterday. Those are horable prices. you should check microcenter.com They have a buy an AMD processor and get a free motherboard deal goin on now. and for an extra 10 bucks you can upgrade. Right now you can get into a 6 core with mobo for under 200 bucks.

Microcenter doesn't ship to Canada. Also note those are CAD dollars. (Though the exchange rate makes it almost equal...)

I didn't know microcenter shipped at all. Pretty sure it's just in store pickup.
