I think those are some good quality upgrades. I see no problems with them.

I wouldn't get the Corsair RAM. OCZ makes better RAM, and don't overcharge like Corsair.

Are you gonna be gaming with this Pc, in which case you might wanna get a gaming mouse, I use the MX518 which works amazingly well, its about 30-40 dollars on newegg. I'm not sure what the MX1000 is wired, or wireless. Optical or laser. Just a suggestion

The MX1000 is a good wireless mouse. My friend has one and i've played on it. It's meant for gaming so you should be fine with it.
