I would recommend you stay away from the CX series, there are better quality options.

This XFX is on offer right now, great deal. http://pcpartpicker.com/part/xfx-power-supply-p1550sxxb9

550 watts should do for that build.

For the RAM you should try to stick to 2x4, they will usually work better, more stable than having 4 sticks. Also, make sure you get 1.5v rated memory, 1.65v stuff is usually lower quality silicon, and it puts more stress on your memory controller. G. Skill usually has some really cheap 8GB 1866 kits, they are often cheaper than the 1600 stuff.

AFAIK Western digital has lower failure rates on their drives. A blue 1TB drive would be fine.

Keyboard: I love my K70. They are somewhat pricey, if you don't want to spend as much there are cheaper mechanicals, but I'd definitely suggest a mechie, once you get it you'll realize how glorious pressing a key can be... See if you can find a store to compare the switch types. At first I was pretty sure I'd get Red switches, but I took the Blues instead, only when I tried the reds did I realize what non-tactile felt like.
