I've been building computers for close to 15 years now and it seems that most people overlook one of the most crucial parts to building a computer; the power supply. Don't skimp out on that thing! Get a Corsair or a PC Power & Cooling. You don't really need a 730w PSU for that computer, i'm running a beefier system on a Corsair 620HX which is the PSU i would suggest.

Again, please don't skimp on one of the most critical parts of your system. A cheap/bad PSU can lead to entire system failure. The rest of your system looks fine though.

If i had ~$800 to spend on a new system, here's my top picks:

CORSAIR CMPSU-620HX 620W Power Supply
-$45.00 Instant

Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 2.4GHz LGA 775 Quad-Core Processor

Seagate 640GB 3.5" SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive

G.SKILL 4GB(2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Memory
-$40.00 Instant

ASUS P5K PRO ATX Intel Motherboard

LITE-ON 20X DVD±R DVD Burner Black IDE Model DH-20A4P-04

ASUS Radeon HD 4850 EAH4850/HTDI/512M Video Card
-$15.00 Instant
-$49.99 Combo

Grand Total: $777.93

The combo deal on the graphics card is because it comes with a free copy of Alone in the Dark

All of those items and prices are from and right now, every single one of those items is *FREE 3 DAY SHIPPING* saving you a ton of money.
