Default Ready to go?

Here is the revised spec for my music production pc. Thoughts?

I'm aiming for the corporate speak-esque catchment term of quiet power.

EVGA nVidia 650i Ultra Socket 775 8 channel audio ATX Motherboard - Ebuyer
59.99 inc vat + free postage

Future proof mobo - supports quad core and has 4 ram strips.

Intel E2160 Socket 775 Pentium Dual Core 2x1.8Ghz 800FSB Retail Boxed Processor - Ebuyer
44.33 inc vat + free postage

This is going to be overclocked hopefully to around 3ghz.

Seagate ST3320620AS 320GB Hard Drive SATAII 7200RPM 16MB Cache - OEM - Ebuyer
51.82 inc vat + free postage

LG GSA-H55LBL 20X DVDRW/DL/Ram LightScribe Black Bare Drive - OEM - Ebuyer
18.79 inc vat + free postage

Corsair HX Modular 520W PSU
Still looking at prices.
I've seen it from 65 to 75 now so i'll say 70 for now

Kingston 2GB Kit (2x1GB) DDR2 800MHz/PC2-6400 Memory Non-ecc CL5 Unbuffered 1.8V - Ebuyer
33.25 inc vat + free postage

Arctic Cooling AC-FRZ-7P Freezer 7 Pro Socket 775 Processor Cooler - Ebuyer
15.43 inc vat + free postage

= 293.61

Has anyone seen a better price or cheaper equivalent component?

Can anybody recommended a case that would fit all of the above components and that is well ventilated?

Also, I have a vista disc here so I don't need to get an os at the moment, although in time I will probably go to xp or linux (or both.)
