Micro ATX Gaming Rig, Requesting Advice

Hi there. I'm planning on making a micro atx gaming machine over the summer. What do you think to the current specs and will it all be compatible? I don't have a huge budget, but want something that's good value and quite powerful. Thanks.

  1. Oops, I missed out the Graphics card. I was hoping to get:

    XFX GeForce 9600 GT 512MB PCI Express Graphics Card - £100
    http://www.play.com/PC/PCs/4-/8550442/XFX-GeForce-9600-GT-512MB-PCI-Express-Graphics-Card/Product.html

    This takes my total up to about £360.
