Question Computer Build Help

I have off and on for the past year wanted to build my own computer for the first time but i never had the time.

I got a better paying job and have a lot of free time and i am going to build a desktop computer for the first time.

I have already bought a Micro ATX case w/300 Watt powersupply.

I went and made a list of the components that i would like in my system,I have done my best to make sure that the stuff will fit but just making sure with you folk's.

Here is the list below.

AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+ Windsor 3.0GHz 2 x 1MB L2 Cache Socket AM2 125W Dual-Core Processor
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103773

MSI K9VGM-V AM2 VIA K8M890 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813130542

ARCTIC COOLING ACF64LP 60mm CPU Cooler for low profile PC
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835186019

G.SKILL 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231098

XFX PVT72SWANG GeForce 7200GS 512MB (256MB on board) 64-bit GDDR2 PCI Express x16 Low Profile Ready Video Card
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814150255

Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 ST3250410AS 250GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822148262

ASUS Black SATA DVD-ROM Drive Model DVD-E616A3T
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16827135143

Rosewill RTK-001 Premium Anti-Static Wrist Strap
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16899261001

There is my list.
It comes to $351.92 plus shipping.
$400.00 Is my limit,I hope that everything above will work properly because i have to add shipping and want to stay under my $400.00 amount.

What will the system be used for exactly, and will you be overclocking?

If it's for gaming, you'll need a much better GPU than the 7200, I'd recommend a HD 4850: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814131111

And if you can afford it, go for a 780G motherboard, you'll get Phenom support and a much better chipset: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813186141

And you won't really need a 6000+ X2 for the things you do, you can save some money and go for this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103212
Or if you want to try your hand at OC'ing, definitely pick up the 5000+ X2 Black Edition.

Thank's for the help worship,I think i am going to stick with what i have posted on first post and see how everything goes and performs.I can always upgrade more to my liking in the future.

Will everything on my org. post work properly?
Also for a operating system i am going to try Linux,I have Vista and hate everything about it.

Listen to worshipme. That GPU will not satisfy your needs. Get at least a 8 Series or a HD 4 Series.

I am not really wanting to upgrade the gaming stuff because i know i will not have a lot of time for it,Besides i can always upgrade in the future.

I know for the next 2 years i don't plan gaming much because i will be doing more important things.

So i still never got an answer,Will everything work properly?
I will be ordering soon so need to know.
