You have to get normal DDR 400 if you're going S939, AM2 uses DDR2. So the RAM isn't compatible with the mobo and CPU you selected. As for GFX, get the 7600GS, and if you can, the 7600GT. Cases are personal preference, and don't cheap-out on a PSU. Look at something like a Antec Truepower2 430.

That looks like a decent setup kilomark, and it suits your pocket as well. Nice one!

No, you don't need to buy 2 GFX cards, PCI-e only gives you the option. But you would need a SLI mobo for that anyway, so don't worry about it!

Ventilation is imprtant when picking a case, try for 2x 120mm fans minimum. Otherwise, just make sure it's a ATX case, and not a shuttle or u-ATX case.

nope youdont need 2 Graphics cards for pci express, its just an option on some motherboards.

in a case, its all pretty much personal preferance. Look for ones with good reviews and that you think looks nice.
