Default Okay, could someone check these specs out for a build?

Seagate Barracuda 7200.7 80gb, Sata Ncq 3.5lp 7200rpm 8mb

AMD (Winchester) Athlon 64bit 3000+ 939pin 512kb L2cache 90nm Retail Boxed Processor with Heatsink and Fan Included and 3 Year Warranty

Corsair (VS256MB400), 512MB (2 X 256), DDR400 / PC3200, Non ECC, 184 DIMM, Unbuffered, CL2.5, Lifetime Warranty

XFX GeForce 6600GT PCI-E 128MB DDR3 TV+Dual DVI

So I need a PSU, CASE and a MOTHERBOARD!

PSU - I was looking at the NeoPower by Antec, but too expensive, would have to save is there an alt to it?

CASE - well I am not sure on a case, can one be picked out for me?
I don't want to excess the £50 budget on my case .... could it have a side window?

Motherboard - I know this takes a big roll in my computer so I was looking at £60/80 I am honestly not sure ...

Overall, I'd like this computer to run Doom 3 fairly good (mid, 800x600) if Doom 3 ran good, I'd know all my other games would zoom ... I am not an overclocker to be honest, never tryed it. not bothered much about the sound it makes as long as it does not sound like a lawnmover!

After this build I'll use it till Christmas, then build another with a high budget and use this as a second for friends (LAN)

Go with eVGA or Leadtek for the video card. I've personally had experience with eVGA, and I know Leadtek is highly recommended.

MSI K8N Neo2 Platinum motherboard
EVGA GeForce 6800 GT
2 GB DDR 400 (PC 3200) (2 x 1 GB sticks) (Dual Channel)
DVD player and seperate DVD RW drive
Floppy Drive
80 GB Western Digital Hard Drive
500 watt power supply
Sound Blaster Audigy
Logitech 5.1 surround sound speakers
SAMSUNG SyncMaster 710T LCD monitor
