looks fine, mobo's now have pice 2.0 slots but they are backwards compatible (a gpu doesn't even use the bandwidth that is available)

I would just pick up some corsair or ocz ram though.

You also might want to get a 7200.11 seagate 500gb hdd instead of that.

Are you overclocking?

I would say get a 520hx corsair but the pc power and cooling 610w silencer is around the same price so get that instead.

Get an HD 4850 rather than the 9800 GTX.

the 4850 and 9800gtx are about on par with each other with the 9800gtx costing a bit more and performing a bit better. (5-7fps difference)

Agreed on the 4850 over the 9800GTX.

Definitely spend a little more for the corsair memory.

If you want one of the fastest performing SATA drives out there then you could get this too:
PCOnlineShop.co.nz - $118.87+GST Western Digital 640GB SATA 7200rpm Hard Drive
But that 500gb will probably be fine.

^that hdd will be un-noticeably faster, and it's more expensive so i would get the 7200.11.
