Lightbulb My new computer

I recently decided that I would put this old Pentium 4 3.0 GHz CPU to use with a budget gamer. I normally play Counter Strike: Source and will be playing the new warrhammer Online soon. I am not too picky with graphics, as long as it looks decent and doesn't lag I am happy. I have compiled a Wish List on NewEgg off all the stuff I will be putting into it. I would appreciate some comments and suggestions on this, here is the link to the wish list:

Wish list details

This build I am hoping to have under $400 and it is at $350 right now.

Thanks!

should get a separate power supply as the one that comes with your case is pretty weak

Ya that was one think I had been thinking about. One friend that I talked to said to try it and see if it worked, if not get it later. do you have any suggestions of how much PSU i need? I am not too sure nad was looking at a 600W...that one does not fit in my budget however

quit looking at the Wattage.. that stupid myth.. what determines how much power you need.. is the 12V Amperage.. the Fortron 450w is enough for that system...

also you should know socket 478 doesn't support PCI-e or DDR2.. so those are incompatible..

Socket 478 supports: AGP and DDR
