Default Final Decisions My Build

I am interested in creating a semi good gaming pc but for the right price, last year i put together a build that was much too expensive but now i am looking to build a pc for around 600 bucks. Basic parts and stuff any advice on what to swap out.

MSI K8N Neo4-F Socket 939 NVIDIA nForce4 ATX AMD Motherboard

eVGA 256-P2-N554-AX Geforce 7600GT KO 256MB 128-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 Video Card

FSP Group (Fortron Source) AX450-PN, 12cm FAN, version 2.0, 2 SATA, PCI Express, 450W Power Supply

AMD Athlon 64 3500+ Orleans 2000MHz HT 512KB L2 Cache Socket AM2 Processor

OCZ Value Series 1GB (2 x 512MB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM DDR 400 (PC 3200) Dual Channel Kit System Memory
