The E6300 is plenty fast.
Get this 2GB
pack of ram
You can also go with a cheaper case to save a few bucks:
Coolmax

Edit: if you can pay a little more you can get

umm...that case doesnt look very cool. Get the centurion 5 or the armor jr.

Best cheap cases.

Mind you... youd probably like raidmax cases better..

About the psu I suggested earlier, get this model instead:

Sunbeam NUUO SUNNU450-US-BK ATX12V/ EPS12V 450W Power Supply - Retail $55.99
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817709002

Only 30 watts less than the one I suggested before, but the Sunbeam is in stock, and its a better psu with better components.
