What is the purpose of this computer? The GPU you picked out will not be much better than integrated graphics, I would just get a G31 mATX board or maybe a G43 mATX board instead, like this one. That PSU is no bueno, get like a Corsair 400cx or PCP&C 370w Silencer and a cheap rosewill case. Change the ram to this, its going to be faster and you get more. You might want to pick up an aftermarket cooler for the CPU and do a light OC to improve performance, something like this could do the trick.

This computer is probably gonna be running some security cameras. I just picked out a cheap GPU because there were no integrated graphics. Awesome advice on everything though, thanks.

I dont want to spend that much on the RAM, how about this?

Thats fine probaby, but 4gb would be best. I don't know what kind of load running a security camera puts on a PC so I can't really offer too much more advice. If it will be a database for footage or something like that though you might want to get a large HDD for storage of data, like the WD1001FALS.

Two gigs should be enough, I dont want to run Vista.

An ATX motherboard wont fit in a case designed for a m-atx mb

The m-atx case will just be too short for the bigger mb to fit .

Cheaper than you original mb , fits in the case and you also save by not needing the gfx card .
You will be fine with 800 MHz RAM too . Intels c2d chips dont need more than that until you are seriously overclocking
, which I dont think is part of the plan .

That should be a very economical system to run too
