Default Super Budget Build - How does it sound to you?

My old pentium 4 based pc motherboard took a crap on me, so i decided its time to build a semi-new pc. Ive been wanting to build a new one anyway. This is a super budget build as i do not have alot of money to spend, but need a pc.
Tell me if there is any compatability issues please.

you can save 2$ with the 3600+ Brisbane instead

Newegg.com - SILVERSTONE ST350 ATX12V 2.2 350W Power Supply 115/ 265V - Retail

better PSU than what you have now... 16amps on the 12v more

1) Would the brisbane be any better?
2) 350w is weak for gefore 8000 series cards that i want to upgrade to in the future, is it not? PSUs are one of the only things i dont know much about.

1. Yours is the Brisbane too.. its just yours is just a 4000+ Brisbane thats just overclocked 200mhz more.. nothing really..
2. 350w isn't something you should look at, go check the specs of the Amperage on the 12v Rails, if you look at it, the Thermaltake has less than the Silverstone, and the Silverstone 350w would be better with an 8 series card actually because of it

Your gonna want a pci-express spot on the MB.

I also would not go chinsy on the PSU. If you get a bad brand/model you risk your whole system. Enermax has some nice cheap solutions.

Go with the brisbane 4000+ only $2 more for 200mhz thats a pretty good deal, plus you can OC it higher anyways, but for the motherboard, you could do so much better for the price.

Newegg.com - ABIT AN52 AM2 NVIDIA nForce 520 MCP ATX AMD Motherboard - Retail

$5 cheaper and its better, read the 3rd review, someone overclocked their AMDx2 3600 form 1.9ghz to 3ghz with this motherboard.
