Default A new PC for me!

Hello, everyone. I figured it's time for a new computer. Upgrading from my sexah beast down in my sig. Check 'er out. I'm on a pretty tight budget, so some of this is STILL a bit out of date. It will do for a while though. I'm doing some casual gaming, nothing hardcore. I'm pretty sure everything here's compatible. Just tell me what you think, and notify me if you know of any better deals. ($CND, $US in brackets.)

Motherboard
MSI K8N Neo4-F Socket 939 NVIDIA nForce4 ATX AMD ---$94.35 ($81.50)
CPU
AMD Athlon 64 3200+ Venice 1GHz FSB Socket 939 ---$195.65 ($167)
RAM
mushkin Value 1GB (2 x 512MB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM DDR 400 (PC 3200) ---$84.51 ($73)
Hard Drive

Video Card
GIGABYTE GV-NX66T128D Geforce 6600GT 128MB GDDR3 PCI Express x16 Video Card ---$162.07 ($140)
Optical Drive
LITE-ON Black IDE Combo Drive ---$31.25 ($27)
Case
RAIDMAX Horizon ATX-287WB Black SECC Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case ---$46.30 ($40)
Power Suppy

Sound Card

Mouse

Keyboard
AOpen KB-858 Black PS/2 Wired Standard Keyboard ---$9.76 ($8.43)

And there you have it.

For another 35 bucks you could upgrade to a 3700, or better yet an opteron 148. I would upgrade to the 6800GS too, and for another 10 bucks you can upgrade to an NEC dvd-rw drive.

How about this for a CPU:

For the gfx card:

And for the OD:

I'll add a US pricing right beside them all in brackets.
Thanks guys.
