Good build?

Hi, I am looking at this build from cougar extreme and am wondering whether it is a good buy or not. I'm told that the PSU and mobo may be of poor quality, but that was by some stubborn idiots from a competing site, so i dont know what to think now. Here is the build anyway:

AM3 Phenom X4 955 3.2 GHz 8 MB Cache,
Manufacturer Supplied Cooler,
4GB Corsair Memory DDR3 1600 (2 x 2gb),
500GB SATA Hard Drive,
AM3 Asus M4N78-SE - DDR2 1066x2 720d chipset,
ATI 4870 512MB PCI Express DDR DVI,
Elite 330 Black Midi Case Window RC-330K-KWPC-GP,
Powercool 850W High Efficiency Black PSU,
DVD+/- RW - 20X (pioneer 116DBK),

Price is £615 delivered. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

look at what is on offer at Novatech, Dabs, Scan and ccl to get an idea of prices. Also look at the pc's listed at the back of the pc advisor magazine. Seems a bit pricey to me.

Check the motherboard & RAM combination. Looks like you've spec'd DDR3 RAM with a DDR2 mobo
