Question First pc build

I'm looking to building my first PC.But I Know how to build it,I'm just having trouble gathering all the stuff together and making sure they all fit.I will be doing some light gaming like WOW and TF2 but mostly just watching movies and browsing the web.I do want a AMD cpu,4gb ram. My budget is 400 or so.I don't need a monitor,keyboard, a mouse ,or OS.

that comes out to : $406.37 + shipping

Just one thing though, there weren't any reviews for the Zotac 9600GSO. The 9600GSO is a good card, i'm just not familiar enough with zotac... and it also has turbocache.. not sure how that affects performance. But if you don't like it you could get the eVGA 9600GSO for the same price, although that one has DDR2 memory.
