If you have the money, the Corsair 620HX or PC P&C 610W.

Cooler Masters are ok for PSUs, but there are better. Their real power series are good.

Default Re: psu

That PSU is a great PSU. It's a little more than needed for that system, but it's good for headroom. You might want to consider the Corsair 520HX, for cheaper. And get the Gigabyte 965P-DS3 (rev1.3) instead. It's only $99.99 at newegg, and is a very good board.

Get this hard drive instead:
Newegg.com - SAMSUNG SpinPoint T Series HD501LJ 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive - OEM
Has 16mb cache for the same price.

For $1000 you could consider this list:
Case - Antec 900 or Cooler Master Centurion 5(Cheaper)
Motherboard - Gigabyte DS4 650i SLI or MSI P6N Platinum or MSI P6N SLI-FI(Cheaper)
CPU - Intel Core 2 Duo E6320
RAM - 2 x 1GB G. Skill DDR2-800 HZs
Graphics - EVGA GeForce 8800GTS 320MB
Power Supply - Rosewill RP550 550W
Hard drive - Seagate 7200.10 320GB 16mb cache
Optical drive - Sony NEC Optiarc DVD Burner
Optional aftermarket CPU cooler, if overclocking - Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro
