AMD 64 3200+ Winchester
EVGA nVIDIA GeForce 6600GT Video Card
MSI "K8N Neo4 Platinum" NVIDIA nForce4 Ultra
Corsair Value Select (Dual Pack) 184 Pin 512MBx2 DDR PC-3200
AOpen Black 52X32X52X16X Combo Drive
Western Digital 80GB 7200RPM SATA Hard Drive

Here are two cases im kinda looking at but im open for suggestions.

I dont like either. I like the Raidmax Scorpio cases and if you can afford it, thermaltake cases. But if anything i would go with the first one.

Both are pretty good. But id go with the 450W one, plus it has more slots for fans.

But better ask one of the pro's, i be a newbie still.

try picking up a cheap case at you local store (antecs make great cheap cases - the one i'm using is $57 and it has a lotta airflow)

but the main thing is to get a good psu (the ocz modstream is about $70 AR)

The motherboard you pick will need an atx v2.0 psu, and most of the case that came with a psu would not have that.
So, here are some brands that you can consider for psu.
Zippy, Seasonic, Cooler master.
