its a toss up. I think the supplied one would suffice - 5 eggs from 500 reviewers speaks highly of the power supply.

The x1900GT might require more power however. A dedicated power supply would be a good investment.

Newegg.com - EXCELSTOR Jupiter Series ESJ8160S 160GB 7200 RPM 8MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive - OEM

Im not totally sure on this hard drive but this is a decent sized hard drive for the price i have absolutly no clue how well they are i remember seeing someone having something against maxtor or some other kind of off the wall HDD company but if you can squeeze it in go with western digital 160gb sata HDD

I would prefer this PSU
Newegg.com - Rosewill Stallion Series RD450-2-DB ATX V2.2 450W Power Supply 115V (90-132V) / 230V (180-253V) CSA, UL, TUV, FCC - Retail

It can handle the X1900GT and they are the lowest i would go in budget for a PSU.

Also that X1900GT is the original clocked version not the Rev.2 that is one flipping sweet deal.

Here is where the card lies.

# 7900GT 256MB
# X1800XT 256MB
# X1900GT
# X1950GT
# 8600GT
# X1900GT Rev2

not too shabby for 99 bucks

for a case...make sure to get one from zipzoomfly.com since its free shipping.

For psu, go with b1gapl's suggestion(FSP 400W PSU)
a good case would be the cooler master 5

i dispute that a 2140 build is better than a 4000 build.

EDIT:
