So this is my pc: http://www.shopping.com/xPF-Sony-VAIO-Digital-Studio-PC-RS720G
http://www.abt.com/product/17008.html

I already removed the original 512 ram and put 2X 1gb corsair.

I want to put 4 more things to it:

GeForce 9600 GSO 768MB
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150320


Intel Core 2 Duo E8500 Wolfdale 3.16GHz
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115036


RAIDMAX HYBRID 2 RX-730SS 730W
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817152036


And this Monitor (I'm not sure if its a good choice for the geforce card)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824009126

Will it work well all together? Or should I add/change some stuff? Plz help me guys, cause I don't know **** about all those new cpu's, and graphic cards technologies, I haven't done my homework for years LOL Thanks for every helpfull answer!

The E8500 will not work on a 915 chipset motherboard you are limited to P4's by the board, probably even to which P4's will work by the Sony Bios.

You don't want a RaidMax Psu terrible unit

Look at something like this> http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817171023

Or one of these Models/Brands>
Seasonic - any model
Corsair - any model
Thermaltake - "Toughpower" series only
Coolermaster - "Real Power Pro" series only
PC Power & Cooling - any model
Silverstone - any model

The 9600GSO is a good card and will work with the monitor.
I always recommend that you actually view the exact model of a monitor at a brick and mortar store before buying online to ensure you like the image quality.

With an OEM motherboard your limited to what Sony wrote the Bios for Oem's rarely if ever update the cpu microcode in the Bios (there is no monetary incentive for them to do so) An Email to Sony Tech Support may get you a list but I would bet it stops at a 3.4 or 3.6 P4 which probably isn't worth the upgrade cost to buy an out of production new cpu.
For a 500Gb Hard drive

I'm not sure how your case is set up for fans, I like 1 in the front sucking in and 1 in the rear blowing out. 80 to 120mm with a speed controller to slow them down and reduce noise when they aren't needed.
