Default Budget Build

Alright just to let everyone know i want to spend no more than $900 so tell me what you think about all this stuff and tell me if it's compatible.

Motherboard- DFI Lanparty nF4 Ultra-D $130

CPU- Athlon 3800+ $320

Graphics Card- 6800 Geforce 256 MB $180

RAM- 2x512MB G.Skill (don't include in price i already have these)

Hard Drive- Western Digital 7800RPM 120GB $70

Case- Antec P160W $115

PCU- Antec NeoHE 380 $80
I'm really not sure if 380 will be enough but tell me if i need more and a good price for it.

That should total to somewhere around $895
Tell me what you think and if there is some problem with all this thanks.Also, this is my first build.Thanx

I have used this power supply before, works like a dream. 55$.

You will also need thermal paste, and a dvd drive too.

As far as I can tell, it's just in the high performance area, not necessarily gaming.
