New Rig Help?

Hey
I'm thinking about building a new computer (my laptop is slowly showing its age!) - I'm sure I have all the parts I need but could someone please have a look and see if what i'm buying is a) Any Good b) compatible with the rest of the build
I'm trying to get as much power out of it as i can without spending a fortune (I realise how hard this will be ) Any hoo this is my build, by the way is CCLonline a descent store?

I would go up on your power supply for sure.

You got a gig of gaming power so i am thinking in the future you may want to expand.

You can never go wrong with a bigger and better power supply.. because remember
without power, your in the dark.

2nd...umm if you can spare the change.. go with a little better processor. Check the MB specs and see what else it can handle or if you can go up to at least a quadcore.

OK "Deathstar" removed - i'm assuming this has a short lifespan Samsung added
Okies - I did have my doubts about the processor Anybody think an AMD Athlon (I or II) Quad Core would do? Someone told me they werent too good so I avoided it
Looking at PSU's also, what kinda wattage u think wud do it? Thanks for help so far btw
