Default Buying parts on friday

I know that i already posted a thread with the same parts a few weeks ago but i just want to be extra sure that my first custom computer will work just fine when i get the parts. I'm going to be using it for gaming and maybe some photoshop.

Parts that I already have:
Antec 1200 case
Acer H233H monitor

Parts that I'll be buying:
Sony Optiarc 24X DVD drive
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...82E16827118030

WD Caviar black 640GB hard drive(2 of them in RAID 0)
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...82E16822136319

Antec Earthwatts 750W PSU
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...82E16817371026

Corsair XMS3 6GB(3x2GB) 1333MHz RAM
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...82E16820145250

MSI PRO-E LGA 1366 motherboard
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...82E16813130226

Core i7-920
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...82E16819115202

Cooler master V8
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...82E16835103055

HIS ATI Radeon HD 4650
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...82E16814161303

My OS is going to be windows 7 ultimate, i got it for $10 through my job

I understand that the graphics card is weak but newegg.ca discontinued the ATI HD 58xx cards and i dont want to spend $200+ on a decent graphics card and then buy another one for $250 when they get them again.

This would be way better than the card you picked. I'm fixing to order one of these myself.

It was showing the same U.S. price when I went to the Newegg.ca site.
