Default Proposed Build - Suggestions or Comments?

Hi

I'm new to PC building, this is the build I am considering:

---------------

Casecom Black Midi Tower Case

Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium x64Bit OEM 1PK DVD

Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 Energy Efficient 95W edition Socket 775 (2.40GHz) G0 Stepping L2 8MB Cache OEM Processor

Western Digital WD5000AAKS 500GB SATA II 7200RPM 16MB Cache - OEM

MSI P35 Neo-F Socket 775 FSB1333 onboard 8 channel audio ATX Motherboard

Arctic Power 500W PSU With PCI-E SATA, 20+4 ATX12V 8pin +12V Connectors

Kingston 2GB DDR2 Memory (X2, for 4gb RAM)

LG GSA-H66NBAL 18X SATA DVD±RW/DL/RAM - Black Bare Drive OEM

Can anyone see any problems with this, or have any suggestions before I make the purchases?

What was your plans for the computer?
What was the budget?
And I don't see a video card.

No budget as such, just want the best value I can get.

Mainly will be using this for Flash and web design, some 3D modelling etc.

Didn't intend on getting a video card right away, think it'd be necessary? I don't intend to be playing games, but I'd like the option to add a graphics card at a later date if I ever wanted to.

A video card will be necessary nless you get a motherboard with onboard video.

Ok, I'd presumed that the motherboard I chose had onboard video.

Finding a motherboard that supports quad core had been the trickiest part because I don't want too spend much on it seeing as I don't intend on overclocking.

Would this one work well with the build?

Gigabyte GA-G33M-DS2R iG33 Socket 775 onboard VGA 8 channel audio mATX Motherboard

Finding a motherboard that supports quad core is easy. Get a gigabyte DSR or DSL. Those both support quad. DSL is about 100 bucks.

Ebuyer didn't have any Gigabyte motherboards that both supported quad core and had onboard VGA, other than the mATX one I mentioned.

Would it matter that it's mATX, or will I need an ATX?
