(if you are going to change anything keep in mind he does want the i5 and the XFX250 for sure.)

What motherboard and PSU? Your links to those are broken.

Motherboard and power supply links aren't what they are.

Keep the GTS250 if you like, but bear in mind that it's overpriced considering you can get a much better 4870 1GB for $10 more, or a 1 GB 4850 for $10 less.

Hope you've considered an operating system for it.

Would suggest a Corsair or PCP&P instead, for a few more dollars.
