Well, I'm ready for a zillion diverse opinions on new Build.

Hi,
I posted here a few weeks ago
http://forumz.tomshardware.com/hardware/Athlon64-3700SD-Athlon64-X2-3800-ftopict177174.html
about which CPU to go with and learned alot from the posts. Which makes me hesitant to post this, my somewhat final build specs.
To summarize:
I am NOT a gamer.
I currently am on an Athlon 800 so I am styling no matter what. 15gHDD
I want a cool running system
I want a quiet system
I won't OC
I do alot of surfing, burning, scanning, music, word, outlook.
I know everyone is going to try to talk me out of every single thing I have chosen for one reason or another but oh-well.

I am not sure about:
Case & PSU
HDD How much do AI really need? I like the Seagate but is it to small?
Video card. I am not a gamer but dont like my mobo choices w/ onboard and want quiet so I went w/ the one listed (heatsink).
I am a bit concerned though that it will create more heat than is warrented for quietness and have back ups in mind.
RAM. I want good stuff but do I need the best as listed?
