Default What can you get for 900 Dollers

Ok im going to be building a pc for myself. My dad said he would pay for some of it and ill pay with w/e money i have left which could work out to be 900 maybe 1,000 dollers. All i need to know is do i go out and buy the parts from a store or order online and can anyone post a rig that i can a afford that i could build. I would greatly appriciate that.

Case
DFI lanparty ultra-d 135 or so
Retail AMD64 Winchester 3200+ - 190 or so
1 gig of twimos ram - 87 or so
seagate 80gig SATA HDD - $60 or so
eVGA 6600GT pci-e - can be found for 150 or so AR at monarchcomputers
OCZ modstream 450W - 80
NEC 3510A dvd-rw - 50

but you DO know how to put together everything right? thermalpaste on CPU, cpu HSF, sata, etc.

you got yourself a copy of XP?

almost everything in-store is crap, so do buy anything from stores; everything else i listed can be found on newegg (monarch MIGHT have the 6600gt cheaper AR, i dunno)
