Default Budget System for my Bro

Alright, i'm pretty much tired of everyone coming in my room to use my pc... i'm thinking of surprising my bro with a computer.. so i guess i'm just asking what you think of this system... he doesnt do too much, myspace, light gaming, like cs source and other hl2 games.. so i guess i'll just list what i'm getting for him

AMD 3000+ w/ TUL ATI Express 200 Mobo (it was a combo)
1 GB Corsair Value Ram
CoolMax 450 Watt Dual 12v Rail http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817159044
120Gb SeaGate Barracuda
NEC DVD Burner
MSI 6800 GS (If i don't sell mine) if i do sell it, then a eVGA 6600GT

Keep in mind, all he does is aim,myspace,music, and some cs.. so i think this would more than qualify for him. i'm open for any suggestions and changes.

the price of that is 386 before taxes, as for the case, i'll worry about that later, just keep everything under 500

I think that build will suit him just fine for his needs. Nice of you to do such a thing.

Yeah, I'm looking foreward to AM2 as well. That's why I'm holding off on upgrades myself. That stuff will be expensive... new mobo, proc, ram... ugh! Totally worth it though.
