Don't make that mistake man, strap a DECENT PSU to this bad boy. Like an Antec Neo Power 480 or even the PC Power and Cooling 510. One4's suggestion of those thermaltakes is excellent as well...
Also, I've had bad experiences with Geil memory, go with Crucial, Corsair, Kingston or another brand name (trust me on this).
The DVD Burner is a bit sub-par. I'd go with the Sony DRU-710A, it's not much more expensive.
Lastly, you probably don't want to trust your graphics duties to Rosewill. Go with the first party card or a Saphire for a third party card. Basically, I'd seriously reconsider MOST of your choices with this system. Check out this months (April Issue) of Maximum PC for an excellent guide to upgrading.
