Before you get upset, the fx4100 is better for you at mosr times, if you need a hexacore for now get it.
The power supply will handle your system as it is in my AMD FX machine, never heard one choke from it and handles well with my pny GT510
The ram is 8gb at 1600, yes I know its not 16gb, but you'll have plenty of breathing room in ubuntu or windows
The case, you like shiny, christmas comes early yes its a beauty alright/
Last since you want a monitor the 24 inch is out of your budget range.
If you still want it, you will have to sacrifice it for something out of the list
The hard drive and video card I think you'll enjoy too much.
Mguires list is quite good as well, you have 2 choices to pick from.
If the budget is in range of 700 bucks both of ours is more than reasonable.
Let us know what you think man.
