Arrow Help me with build I'm working on.....

Ok budget is $800 and that has to include a monitor, speakers, and mouse/kb. Computer will be used for general stuff like internet browsing, word processor, ect. So far I've chosen these parts,

Raidmax Astro Black Case
450W Power Supply (Haven't chosen a model yet)
Asus A8N5X Socket 939 nVidia nForce4 motherboard
eVGA GeForce MX4000 128MB DDR PCI Video Card
AMD Athlon 64 3200+ Venice
Patriot Signature Series 1GB(2x512MB) DDR 400(PC3200)
Western Digital Caviar SE 80GB Hard Drive
Logitech Keyboard and Mouse
Viewsonic Optiquest Q7B 17" 12ms LCD
Sony CD-ROM drive
DCT Factory 2.0 Speakers
Windows XP Home

I'm open to suggestions on the motherboard and monitor(without spending more money on them though). Also if someone could recommend a good power supply for this build I would appreciate it.

The guy I'm building it for insists on an LCD monitor and an Athlon 64 processor but anything else is open to discussion.

thanks for any help

psu - http://shop1.outpost.com/product/446...H:MAIN_RSLT_PG

horrible video card, how about this one http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130267

a dvd burner could be nice

for the monitor i suggest a used one from a friend or something for a low price to save some money but only if you're not very picky about respond time, resolution, brightness, and blah blah blah

Wrong Forum isn't it? This should be in low-end.
