Default Just about to buy- hows my system?

Hi all, I have been in process of building a system and am nearly ready to buy. Please can you check my system for compatibility, reliability e.t.c and what can be improved. I am in the UK.

AMD 3200+ Venice s939 Processor
A8n-Sli Deluxe s939 Motherboard
1gb Crucial ddr 400 pc3200 RAM
128mb 6600GT Graphics Card
Dell 2005fpw 20 inch Screen
160gb Seagate Barracouda 7200rpm Hard Drive
Sony Black DVD+-RW Drive

Ok thats everything (coming in at around 900 pounds), except the case. I can't seem to find a nice case from a reliable place very easily. I only have around 40 to spend ($70) but I would like a nice windowed reliable case. Any reccomendations.

I will be using this for moderate gaming, music (will the sound quality from the motherboard and screen be ok?), photo-editing and other normal computer use.

Any advice / warnings?

The System Looks fine, i dont care much about my PC case so i have never looked into good ones.

Just make sure that the 160GB HD u have is SATA and has NCQ. And you will also need a copy of windows

You may want a bigger psu as 370W is kind of low for a system for today.
