You are right of course, I did see they were the same spec's and same part number, but the description is what kept confusing me.
Typical newb confusion I guess.

Thank's
Any other thoughts for what else I may need ?
I'm aware the video card is going to be a choking point for now.

Let's recap what changes you are going to make, and what parts you are going to end up with.

Case: Define R4 - 3 extra 140mm fans
Psu: Ultra x4 Modular 1050w
Graphics card: Galaxy 210
Mem: Corsair DDR3 xms 1333 16GB
SSD: OCZ Vertez3 120GB
Hdd: Hitachi 1 TB
CPU cooler: Gemin s524
CPU: AMD FX-8350
MB: ASRock 990FXExrtreme4

The only part I'm not 100% sure about is the MB.

Looks good, but I am not 100% sure the CPU cooler is compatible with that socket/cpu. Other than that, the GPU is the only thing that isn't up to snuff and if you aren't gaming, it won't be a problem.

No, no gaming.
Here are the cpu cooler spec's:
COOLER MASTER GeminII S524 120mm Long Life Sleeve CPU Cooler Compatible with Intel 2011/1366/1155/775 and AMD FM1/FM2/AM3+ - Newegg.com
will it be ok ? I looks like it would to me.

While the cooler will work with the AM3+ socket, it doesn't look to support the FX series of CPU's.

Any idea what the difference is ?

If not how do I find out ?

Here is what I would use if you don't plan on OC'ing it to the limit and needing a closed loop water cooler..... Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo

The socket is the physical slot on the motherboard where the CPU goes. The socket for the FX-8350 is AM3+. It will physically fit, but the details show that it doesn't support the FX series of CPU's. It may be that it is not rated for use with that TDP, or it could just have not been updated. I think you will be happier with the Cooler Master I linked you to. Other members can attest to the bang for the buck you get with the Hyper 212 Evo.

Laptop drives/ram/possibly OS upgrade advice needed please
My Dell Inspiron 17R N7010 is getting a bit tired now although it’s clean and tidy bugs wise and runs fine if a little slowly for me. A friend said it can help a lot if you put more RAM in and as big a hard drive that it can sensibly take. So I did a little research and splurged out on 2 x 4GB...
