You'd be better off with a better PSU, e.g., Antec or Enermax, Roswell isn't consider that good. If you can't afford to go to an E4400, about $35, you might want to consider AMD AM2 X2, the processors and often times the mobo are less expensive. Check out this chart for comparison. For example you could get an X2 4400 Brisbane for about $6 less than 2160 will cost you and and X2 4600 for about $6 more.

shouldn't this be in the section of the forum entitled "new system build"? where things about new computer's built should be? but I do agree with g-paw, that processer is nearly in the league of my 1-year-old-fairly-cheap-when-new-laptop

Check out Corsair 520HX, E6550, X1950XT. You'll pay more but it's worth it. Maybe spend less on mouse and keyboard if the budget is very strict...
