Default Building then Selling

Ok, I'm gonna build a PC, then see if I can sell it for a small mark-up price. Can someone tell me what they think of this setup? Please remember that I live in New Zealand, and the prices are much more expensive than the good ol US of A.

HAIRONG H622 Case with 400w PSU.
AMD Sempron 2800+ Socket 754 CPU
ASROCK K8Upgrade-VM800 Socket 754
40GB Seagate Barracuda, 2MB cache , 7200rpm
BENQ DW1640 16X DVD+/-R/RW DL Writer
Generic 2x256Mb Dual Channel DDR RAM
Crappy Keyboard and Mouse
Windows XP Home OS

All this adds up to $450-$550 NZD. Include a monitor, and the price gets bumped up to $600-$700 NZD. I was thinking that the CPU may be a bit slow, anyone got any suggestions on what to take out/change/get rid of?

Ok, I just realized that the site I got the info off is crap, and that they change their stock too much. So now I'm open to suggestions for a whole new system. Note that this will not be used for gaming, I'm aiming at the student/internet only using person.
