Looks good, but do not use that psu, That psu is junk and if it goes it will take all you new parts with it. Get a corsair 550 or antec 500 instead.

i agree with caniba on the psu. also, you'll want a 64 bit os to read the 4 gigs of ram. lastly, do you have a graphics card because the p5q pro doesn't have on board video?
