try to get a cheaper case&psu. Then u have some money to buy more ram. U should have atleast 1Gb. Other than that there really ain't much that we should change, unless u want a less powerfull gpu which would leave more money for the other parts.

You should never neglect the power supply and think any one will do. Make sure you get a good power supply and I would get a gig of ram.

These days, 450 watt power supply should be the new minimum for gamers. Those video cards draw power like crazy. Yes, I agree you need more RAM. Sparkle video card? Never heard of it, but if it uses the 6800 chipset, then I guess they're ok. That's a lot of money for a case. Get a $45 one and buy a new power supply. You'll save tons.
