Hi, could are ask what site these are from, so we can look at prices.

At first glace, I'd say ditch the 9600GSO and go with a 9600GT or HD 4830.

And Allendale is probably right about the PSU, it's not going to be of very good quality. Have a look at the OCZ StealthXStream 500W.

That's not bad, but make sure you're getting an SB 750 board, a lot of the 790FXs still carry the older SB600 southbridge.

TD's selection of 790FX boards is pretty poor, so I'd go with a 790GX.
