Question Need an opinion

Hi everyone!

I am looking at getting a computer built and i got a quote for all of the parts that are going to be included and i just wanted to know whether it is a reasonable price and also if the parts are high quality or not, seeming as i know nothing about the workings of inside a computer, i am hoping someone who knows what they are talking about will be able to give me their opinion on whether it will be good and worth the money.

Here are the all prices are subject to australian dollars.

Unicase G8015C 500W Black See Thru FrontUSB LCD $115

Intel P4 640 (S775 3.2Ghz 800FSB 2MB HT Prescott) $330

Gigabyte GA-8I915P Duo Pro Intel915P DDR2/DDR400 $199

Kingston 1GB (2x512MB) PC4200 DDR2-533 $169

DVD+/-RW/DualLayer Pioneer 109D 6x Dual Layer/16x DVD+R OEM $79

Seagate 300GB 7200RPM 8MB SATA NCQ $239

the prices for the parts seem pretty fair. i didn't really look around, only at the sites for a couple of pc stores i know in my area. perhaps a little too much for the hdd and i would reccomend another power supply than the one that will be in that case. a good 500w psu should probably cost more than that case which includes the psu
