Okay. Went back and redid some things. What do you think of this set up?

NZXT NEMESIS ELITE SV Silver Aluminum ATX Mid Tower Computer Case 400W Power Supply - Retail - $120

DFI LANPARTY UT nF4 Ultra-D Socket 939 NVIDIA nForce4 Ultra ATX AMD Motherboard - Retail -$135

eVGA 256-P2-N376-AX Geforce 6800GT 256MB GDDR3 PCI Express x16 Video Card - Retail - $345

CORSAIR ValueSelect 1GB (2 x 512MB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM DDR 400 (PC 3200) Unbuffered Dual Channel Kit System Memory Model VS1GBKIT400 - Retail - $78.99

AMD Athlon 64 3500+ Venice 1GHz FSB Socket 939 Processor Model ADA3500BPBOX - Retail - $267

Total $945.99

Is this a better? In the high range of my budget now. I won't be overclocking anything, at least for a good while so I don't really need to worry about that. Any more suggestions for parts?

Thank you all for the good responses. It really helps me out.

You will NEED a power supply. Case PSUs are no-name PSUs will often lead you to buying your parts twice.

Go with the OCZ 520w Modstream.

Like said, don't be that guy!

The case psu will harm the parts after a while?

not necessarily, it's just that generic case psu's are bad.

okay. What are the good brands of psu's? I am a little reluctant to put over $100 into the psu alone.

If you want a good PSU and aren't willing to spend too much, get this one .
It has 34A on 12V.

You shouldn't be. So many people forget the significance of the PSU and what can potentially happen to your system if you get an insufficient one.

Besides, that OCZ 520w Modstream is an outstanding PSU for $90. It would surely be more than enough.

I haven't heard anything good from Rosewill.

Go with the OCZ; you can't go wrong with it.

Ummm, ya nice power supply man. ROsewill is the ROXXXX. Seiriously though, get the OCZ modstream on sale at newegg for 68 bucks after rebates.
