Hi I was wondering whether this case would be good for cooling and generally a good case for building a PC

CASE: iMicro CA-IM1207P 400W 20+4pin ATX Micro Tower Case (Black) Price:26.99

gonna be running the following on it

CPU: Core 2 quad 2.4ghz 1066 FSB Q6600 Price: Not sure about price. 10-30$ buying used.

Motherboard: ASRock 4CORE1333-GLAN R2 Core2 Quad 1066/800FSB Motherboard w/ DDR2 800/667, PCI Express x16, SATA 300 Price: 32.50

Hard Drive: SAMSUNG SPIN POINT SP2504C 250GB SATA 3.5" DESKTOP HARD DRIVE Price: 10$ Used

Video Card: ATI Radeon HD4650 1gb PCIE 5$ used

DVD Drive: LG DVD Burner 24X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 8X DVD+R DL 24X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 32X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM Black SATA Model GH24NS70 - OEM 18.99$

RAM: 2GB PC5300 DDR2 667MHZ SAMSUNG 240PIN ECC Reg 2X1GB RAM MEMORY LIFETIME WARRANTY Puchasing Qty. 2 for 4gb of total DDR2 ram. 21.66

Using Max Prices for the prices I'm not sure about: $145.15

So just tell me if this case can handle all this cooling and fitting the stuff. I'm pretty sure it can.

Oh and if you could Could you tell me if this build is decent for a 14 year old with a budget. And if you know of cheaper parts that do the same thing or a better video card please tell me :) 
Thanx :)

No I don't have a cooler but was just wondering with all the fans the case accommodates the rear fan and the side air duct would it be good for cooling plus the power supply fan?

I admit that is a great case but does it come with a power supply? WHat the heck is a cooler? And is my build decent do I need to replace something with something else? Do you recommend a better video card?

ah. Well how about this power supply

Power Supply: Hercules Black ATX 600w Dual fan Silent power supply w 20-24 pin SATA PCI-e. I can get it for 25$

As for a case I have an old computer case that looks great but it's missing it's two side panels. But I plan to get a Cooler Master case ASAP.

ok so here is my plan I'm going to buy my hard drive, motherboard, ram, power supply, processor and DVD drive. Then just gonna use my black case. It's a full tower case and I would only use it temporarily approximately 2 months until I would purchase The Cooler Master Elite 430 RC-430-KWN1

Does that sound like a good plan? And will that power supply be efficient for my needs?

Don't skimp on the psu, a cheap $25 psu that goes wrong can take out your mobo, cpu, memory, gpu and leave you rebuilding a complete system.

Put off buying the case for 1 extr amonth and pu the money towards something from Antec, Seasonic, OCZ etc etc.
