Default New computer

Hi guys I'm not very experienced with computers so I would appreciate some help with building a computer. I put together a list of items that work very well under my budget. I'm not even sure what I need but other than the stuff in the list I also have a moniter, mouse, keyboard, and every wire I could imagine that would be needed. If any of these things will not work for any reason please let me know and if you have any recommendations of other cheap and quality items that are better than mine I would appreciate the information. Thank you- heres the list!

Here a few replacements.

Newegg.com - Rosewill RP550-2 550W ATX12V v2.01 Power Supply - Power Supplies
+$15, but I wouldn't trust hec

BIOSTAR TA790GXB A2+ AM2+/AM2 AMD 790GX ATX AMD Motherboard - Retail
AND
OCZ 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model OCZ2P8004GK - Retail

-$15

Newegg.com - AMD Athlon II X4 620 Propus 2.6GHz 4 x 512KB L2 Cache Socket AM3 95W Quad-Core Processor - Processors - Desktops
-$10, plus it is a quad

Newegg.com - Western Digital Caviar Black WD5001AALS 500GB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive - Internal Hard Drives
+$27, but x4 the cache, x1.56 the storage, and just faster

That's a net of +$17, but with free shipping on PSU, mobo, CPU, hard drive, OS, and GFX card.

Thanks so much for the help, looks like I'll be buying that this afternoon.

*edit* The combo deal is no longer available so I was thinking of changing the motherboard but keeping the memory the same. What do you think about that?
