Default Building New Computer

Ok, so heres how it is. I have never built a computer beore, although I do have some knowledge of the components, I fear I will not make the right decisions. I want this computer for online games, like Americas Army and World War II:Online. Purely a gaming computer. Right now, I max out at 10 FPS on AA's least detailed map, and it can bottom out at 2 FPS in firefights of four or more people. Please would someone help me! These are the parts I have been thinking of, if there are any better parts or any incompatibilities within these parts, please do not hesitate to post. By the way, I hope to keep my budget from $1000-$1500 Canadian, if possible.

CPU-AMD Athlon 64 3000
MoBo-7N400 Pro II nVidia
Hard Drive- Hitachi 7k250
Video Card- ATI Radeon 9600
Memory- Kingston 1024MB Dual Channel
Cases- Cooler Master Centurion 2
DVD- Artec DHM-G48
Monitor- IBM G78

Also, am I missing any products that are required? I am in dire need of help!

If your cpu is retail then it will come with a heatsink and fan, for a monitor i highly recommend the Samsung SyncMaster 793DF

Alright so I think I'm set. Oh, one more thing, I am pretty sure tigerdirect's money system is in Candian dollars(the .ca), but what about all those other ones? How can I tell?
