I can't really tell you to change specific things without knowing what you want to do with this computer; gaming, school, media, etc... Everything looks compatible though EXCEPT for your power supply. It says it has '20 + 4 pin main connectors' which, I'm pretty sure, is not the same as the 24 + 4 pin power connectors that motherboard needs. Also, 450 watts seems a little low. If you get a different power supply I would say nothing under 550 watts just to be on the safe side and check to make sure it has SATA power cables for your hard drive and optical drive.
Other than that..
What I would point out though is
motherboard only has one pci express x16 slot which is fine so long as you don't plan on adding another card later on which would require that kind of slot
DDR2 is going to be outdated by the end of the year. DDR3 memory is uber expensive now though so it's up to you whether or not to change now.
CPU is very powerful nice! : )
not sure why you would want that external hard drive rather than just another internal one
good stuff =)
