Default my attempt at custom building a computer

Hey, this is my first attempt at custom building my own computer. I will be using it for average gaming I guess you could say, 2-3 hours a day, maybe longer on weekends. I would just like some feedback on this, if you think it’s good, bad, if imp missing anything, if everything will fit together and work right. Thanks.
Power supply
Graphics card
Hard drive
cd/dvd drive

The case might fall apart on you. Hopefully not, but you may want to spring for a little more, maybe 30 bucks plus shipping?

I have no personal experience, but rumor has it that ASUS motherboards are buggy with this era of AMD processors. Maybe try this.

Power supply would be a gamble. It could be the greatest thing ever, it also could be unstable. They didn't even post amp ratings on the rails... Maybe go with Antec or a brand we're more familiar with. I'm not a big PSU guy, so I'm not gonna pretend.

Graphics Card: Atta kid, good choice.

CPU: You've got me smiling.

RAM: We're gonna do something a little different. You have a setup that supports dual channel ram. If you use 2x512 sticks of ram, your performance will increase.

Hard Drive: I have never owned a hitachi. Most guys will recommend Seagate and Western Digital. Maxtor is the next in line.

DVD Burner: Good.

Oh, I didn’t know that about the RAM. I just dabble a little in computers, kind of just getting into them. Think you could help me out on a power supply and hard drive? Now that I think about it I could probably go with a 40gig because ill still have this computer for all my other needs.
