I would upgrade to GPU to at least a 6870 if you can afford it and maybe a slightly higher wattage psu, but other then that looking good

Er no, I wasn't joking, lets say OP does go for a 6870 and then wants to add a second GPU in the future, he will be right on the line of max power from 550W PSU, so instead of having to buy another PSU because of upgrades he will already have a PSU that will handle them.

To OP: I don't know what kind of thermaltake power supply that is, but some of their PSU's are crappy.

Buy this instead, it's a solid PSU and gives you headroom for some overclocking

I would go for a little bit larger hard drive, something like 500GB-1TB.

What version of the 550w is it? Toughpowers are fine, but some versions of the tr2's are known to cause system instability.

If you can afford it I'd go for higher watts on your psu (more scope for future upgrades)- but stick to recognised brands - buy cheap buy twice.

Better Case options with cable management for the same ~price.
NZXT H2 -really silent case

Li-lan are usually nice

Xigmatex Ultgard same idea as other just different look

Fractal Design r3 white, black or slate, one of the nicest cases for around 100.00

The CM HAF 912 is not as pretty inside, but is a large case and offers a very decent setup for the 60.00 and good enough cable management

What ever case you get, get one with plenty of room, good airflow, and cable management. If you get the V9, it offers very little in the way of cable management and is a relatively small case for the coin. I am somewhat unimpressed with that case after seeing it in the local fry's. I would go for something else.
