the power supply worries me most.

cpu 125watts(not overclocked)
gpu 200watts(not overclocked)

remember that at best this psu will run 85% of listed power.

Definitely pushing the limits of that psu...you might want to consider a better psu....like the 750w to 850w range, and one that is 80+ certified.
