graphics card is weak

Motherboard and RAM are terrible choices for a new build: DDR2 is more expensive and slower than DDR3, and thats an AM2 motherboard anyway. It'll throttle your CPU

case is fine, but Logisys makes small fireworks factories, not power supplies

hard drive is re-certified (read: used) and a slow Green drive

your CPU is ok and so is the DVD burner.

What's your budget, we can do a lot better

ok, for $350 we can narrow our view just a bit. I you can swing up to $400 we can do a great PC,

I have to assume you already have a keyboard, mouse, speakers, monitor, and operating system

Are you near a microcenter, as that will go a long way if you are with their in-store promo.

a quick, off the cuff build:

AMD Athlon II X3 450: $79
AS Rock 770 or 880: $60
Mushkin 4 GB DDR3-1333: $42
CoolerMaster Elite 310 case w/ 460 W PSU: $70
Seagate 7200.12 500 GB HDD: $50
DVD Burner: $18
Palit GTS 450: $110

This is $429!

some combos can reduce it if you hunt well

Graphics card and case are terrible.... u should switch to an AM3 motherboard and get a Phenom II X3

This case is the same price range, has a discount code currently, and isn't plastic. It looks to be the same body as a Rosewill Challenger but I am not sure.
It is $30 without only $2 shipping, instead of the $35 + $20 shipping charge on the other case you had. On such a tight budget I can't see using 5%+ of the entire budget on shipping for the case.

The one you listed has a couple more fans but that is easily fixed by grabbing a 4 pack of them for about $10 later ($15 for blue LED ones) on if the rig is getting hot, which it shouldn't with the other parts you have.
