Drop the case, PSU, and sound card.

Get this case:
http://www.chiefvalue.com/app/produc...tem=11-129-158
Don't worry. ChiefValue = NewEgg, different store front.

That case comes with an awesome PSU, and it is Antec.

Go with onboard sound for now.

Take the extra you have and get either a better monitor, or a laser mouse (as I assume you'll be gaming).

Yeah I didn't think a nice keyboard and mouse was a big deal but now that I finally stopped being cheap and bought some good ones I wont go back. Its a Logitech G5 mouse and a ZBoard btw.

On board sound is usually plenty, and a good case helps with the build, looks and cooling so dont go cheap. Cooler master and Thermaltake both make great cases for pretty cheap. I got the Thermaltake Saprano and love it.
