i have not checked each link specifically i just skimmed over and notied that RAM is slightly slow pc2 5400 is only 667 Mhz i think .. like i said i have not looked at the links specific so maybe the motherboard cant take 800Mhz but if it can id def get 800 instead of 667.

if the mobo cant take it then maybe consider changing coz for $80 im sure u can get a board that supports 800Mhz post bak if u want a new 1 ill have a look for ya

You're not missing anything as far as I can tell.

Get a better motherboard. ASRock isn't exactly the best known brand. Something like this would do the job better:
http://www.ncix.com/products/index.p...nufacture=ABit

Looks like everything is compatible.

I'd get a better power supply. The 450 watt could be okay, but I wouldn't count on it. Probably 550 watts to be safe, preferably from a good brand like Silverstone, Antec, etc.

The case honestly doesn't matter all that much unless you're overclocking and you're very concerned about temperatures.

My main concerns are if the motherboard and the computercase is compatible, and also if the powersupply (450W) is enough. I only want a powersupply that is enough for my selected components.

A 450Watt Power supply is fine, mobo and case are compatible.
