hey for $50, a rosewill case and a proven decent 400w power supply is a good deal. if you get a cheaper case, it'll probably have a shitty or nonexistant powersupply, in which you'd need to spend the other $30 or $20 or whatever on that. you're not saving anything.
conclusion: please go with my build, you'll find itll be plenty fine for everything years to come
it should be considered very powerful for gaming until about mid/late-2009, when ATi Releases the HD5xxx series (R800) and NVIDIA comes out with the higher-end GTxxx models (D12U). If you want it to stay a solid gamer, you'll want to upgrade to 4GB of RAM by around this fall, to keep up.
