Default New Gaming Rig....Advice needed!

Ok, I'm allowed to build meself a new AM2 rig!

I have £560 to spend, and with this I need to get:
Case
PSU
CPU
Mobo
Graphics Card
RAM
DVD-RW

I'm currently looking at the following:

CPU: http://www.overclockers.co.uk/acatal...aCP_2d164_2dAM

Mobo: http://www.overclockers.co.uk/acatal...aMB_2d147_2dAS

RAM: http://www.overclockers.co.uk/acatal...aMY_2d095_2dCS

Graphics: http://www.overclockers.co.uk/acatal...aGX_2d025_2dBG

Case:
http://www.overclockers.co.uk/acatal...aCA_2d012_2dAN

PSU:
http://www.overclockers.co.uk/acatal...aCA_2d005_2dHP

DVD-RW:
http://www.overclockers.co.uk/acatal...aCD_2d037_2dNE

Firstly, what do you guys think? Secondly, do you think theres anything I should change/replace?


I know I've posted tonnes of threads RE: upgrading my current system, but I`m now going to give this one to my brother, but keep on using my Harddrive. When I build my new system, and install my current HDD, what exactly will happen? It won't recognise all of the hardware will it? Is there an activation code or something you need? Cheers guys!
