Don't get the apevia power supply. They're not a good brand. Get the Fortron 450W:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817104954

And get a better brand of ram. Look for Corsair, OCZ, or G. Skill.
Heres a suggestion:

or

It's not about watts. It's about amps on the +12v rails. And it's got plenty of amps for the 7950GT.

You'll save yourself more money, by building it yourself.

If the motherboard is retail, you should get all the cables and stuff you need. Plus the case comes with all the screws you need.

Check this list I made:

Where are you ordering from, by the way?
