Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 Wolfdale 3.0GHz LGA 775 65W Dual-Core Processor Model BX80570E8400 - $170

Really my main question is whether its all compatible. Is the case adequately sized for the hardware? I'd probably prefer to stick to the monitor as I tend to drift towards namebrands, but if anyone has any suggestions there I'm willing to listen to cut down as much as possible. Can I improve anywhere without much hike in cost? Should I cut anything unnecessary? Let me know your thoughts. This will primarily be used as a gaming PC but also for potential work at home (hence why I need office).
