    I would get a better power supply brand. Here are some better options in the same price range.
    FSP400

    Personally, if I was building an intel based system, I'd go for a dual core system, it costs very little more money.
    Newegg has a combo deal on a Abit AW8 and a intel pent D 930

    x1800xt vs 7800gt, depends on your preference.

    Best wishes.
