Default Building a PC for me: Opinions wanted!

Ok, first off, those stuff is selected with precision.

Since I don't play the high-end games, this build is meant for N64 and lower, along with UT2004. I know my old 1.33 machine (Second in sig) played with a Geforce 4 MX 4k with no problems.

The board I though is this one:

The CPU is this one:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819104305
The RAM is 2GB RAM DDRII-533
The HDD will be an 800GB SATA. I don't need excrutiating space either.
The PSU Will be a standard ATX PSU...say 550W.
The GPU, as I don't game much, will be this one:

For the case...this is crucial. I need a Desktop form factor case. My room is hopefully going to get bigger, and what bigger, comes with a corner desk with two PCs. I'm opting for a Desktop switch, as I am going to put the PC ontop. Good airflow is a must. Also, when it's going to be nice and mild outside, I'll open the window, and that will throw air in. Now, here's what I thought:

This one is the one I find the best.

However, this one:

Looks nice. But, I'm a little concerned about 60mm fans. They don't do as well as the 80mm ones.

I was planning previously a beige case, for a RetroTeKno project, but dropped it. Old cases tend to not have fan inputs (Slot 1 days were the most quiet PCs)

What do you think?

Thats a pretty economical machine if I ever saw one. Will definately be quiet. Is the ram x2 = 4gb or x2 =2gb?
Looks like a very solid build, not really my cup of tea though, I tend to gravitate more towards the jaw dropping light up cases and fancy cooling systems but, whatever floats your boat.

Most looks good, but that seems like a pretty expensive case considreing it doesn't ship with a power supply. Also, a 600W PS? Will there ever be a time that you draw that much power with those components? Great processor choice. Man, thats a pretty good deal on that processor, I might have to buy one. Nice lookin case though, very sleek.
