One thing that i do question is the network card i've chosen the 'Netgear GA311GE 1000bt Gigabit PCI'. Is this type of card necessary, just that I won't be using it for networking.. merely to install a wireless router i have (which is only used for the internet).

My understanding is that your mobo is already Gigabit LAN controller equipped.

Get a bigger PSU

I used a couple of those online psu calculators and they said i would need on average 350W

It may but you should allow for upgrading
