i would relace (ya relace with some good stuff!, sorry typo, ***replace***)the case and cpu atleast

Newegg.com - Antec Three Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Computer Cases
$60

Newegg.com - AMD Athlon 64 X2 7750 Kuma 2.7GHz 2 x 512KB L2 Cache 2MB L3 Cache Socket AM2+ 95W Dual-Core black edition Processor - Processors - Desktops
$66

i would never buy apevia anything, just my personal opinion.

and the 7750 > than that 6000.

you may want a better brand motherboard aswell.

what ever you do, dont use the psu that comes with the case, these are almost allways low quality, and may put your entire system @ risk of failure and perm damage.

the power supply is nothing that should be overlooked, as it is sometimes considered the most important part of your rig.

much better case you picked out over that apevia.

looks are not everything airflow is what is most important if your going with air cooling.

Is there a problem with airflow with that case?
It seems to have 2 120mm Fans in it
