If you are buying a computer be sure to buy it from Suicide George, he can get you better deals than newegg.
He has built PC's for several people on the forums!

1 TB = bad nowadays, thats way too much HDD space and it will make your computer slow!
Cpu looks good,for the price, you might be able to get a better Video Card from Suicide George.
400w sounds weak, but good enough for the current setup. I'd suggest going with at least 600w so you are future proof for upcoming upgrades.
