Default How's my build?

I am going to buy all this:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103535
AMD Athlon 3200+ $160.00

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820145440
Corsair ValueSelect 1GB(2X512MB) $70.00

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130256
eVGA Geforce 7800 GT $300.00

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813130491
MSI K8N Neo4-F ATX AMD Motherboard $70.00

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822135106
Western Digital Caviar 80GB Harddrive $55.00

Total: $655.00

Will all this stuff work together? Do I need anything else? I have barely any money left, maybe 50 bucks at the very most. I need help picking out a case. Also, Will this be good to play new games like Battlefield 2 on highest graphics?
Thanks

I think he may have one from other parts, seeing as he's missing other things too. If not ... get the PSU as well as the other things lol. Anyway, I don't really think the motherboard is top quality, I like DFI for their quality and good OC abillity, but that's your decesion.

Your memory is fine, but if your going to be OCing I'd reccomend something in the higher quality OCZ range.

I've never overclocked before,and this is my first build. I'll probably overclock the processor. I'm going to get my PSU with the case(which I havent picked out) Anything else missing, though?

Don't use a PSU that comes with a case. Unless we say otherwise. Some cases come with good power supplies such as Antec.

But most do not.

The problem is, I have barely enough money for a case let alone a PSU.

It looks liek you might have to cut some costs unless you spend a little more and buy the Antec Sonata II case which comes with an adequate PSU. If you can't increase your budget then I would recommend getting a 6800gs instead of the 7800gt
