Default Absolute newb needs help

Howdy, i have been reading these forums religiously over the past week, i am considering building my own computer, just from reading these threads has given me alot of insight, i am hoping to learn more and more now that im a member and will post questions and interact, before i get started into building my new computer i thought i would ask for help, my budget is roughly $1200 AU, i know that this isnt much money at all for a good computer, but its all i can afford so please be gently...im hoping people can give me insight on what hardware i should get, i know by reading forums some people get really aggravated about others asking so ill apolagise in advance...these are what i want in my PC so if people could tell me what cominations are good ill be happy...

2 x 512 DDR ram
Video Card (probly Ge Force 6200, as it seems alright for a cheap price (im not into playing all the recent games))
200 Gig Hard-drive
Processor (not worried about Intel or AMD, i have no preference)

i already have a dvd burner and i can choose a case based on how much i have left over....thank you....could ppl also explain why they have chose those parts as im wanting to learn more and more
