Hi, I'm going to be building my own computer for the first time, and I was wondering if you'd take a look and evaluate my choices...

CASE: ASPIRE X-Dreamer II ATXB4KLW-BK Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case 420W Power Supply - Retail ($57)
MOBO: ASUS K8N4-E DELUXE Socket 754 NVIDIA nForce4 4X ATX AMD Motherboard - Retail ($87)

CPU: AMD Athlon 64 3000+ Venice 800MHz FSB Socket 754 E6 Processor Model ADA3000BXBOX - Retail ($126)

VIDEO: eVGA 128-P2-N368-TX Geforce 6600GT 128MB GDDR3 PCI Express x16 Video Card - Retail ($135)

HD: Seagate Barracuda 7200.7 SATA NCQ ST3120827AS 120GB 7200 RPM Serial ATA150 Hard Drive - OEM ($85)

RAM: Patriot Signature Series 1GB (2 x 512MB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM DDR 400 (PC 3200) Unbuffered Dual Channel Kit System Memory Model PSD1G400KH - Retail ($85)

DVD: NEC Black IDE/ATAPI DVD Burner Model ND-3520A - OEM (ALREADY OWN)

Anyhow, I'd appreciate your imput, and if you have similarly-priced alternative suggestions I'd welcome them.

Do you think the case is suitable or should I look for a better one in the same price range?

socket 754 is getting pretty outdated, wont allow for easy upgrade if you want to later down the line. also is that patriot ram value ram? if so get the corsair 2 x 512mb for 99 on newegg thats hi performance dual channel. power supply is probly gonna die soon for that cheap.. antec psu's are the best.
