Default New Build Specs - What'd you think?

So, I have finally chosen the specs for my new PC, which I will be building as soon as all the parts are released. I can't wait!

AMD Athlon 64 3000+ Socket 939 Venice Core 1.8GHz

Abit AX8 with Guru Clock - 79.95 (Gladiator Computers)

Seagate Barracuda 7200.7 200GB 8MB cache - 77.54 (Scan)

400W Scan 3XS Silent Power Supply with 120mm fan - 11.73 (Scan)

1GB (2 x 512MB) PC3200 (Major Elixir) Retail - 58.26 (Scan)

NEC ND-3520A Dual Layer - 36.68 (Scan)

Aerocool JetMaster Jr - 38.72 (Casetech)

Thermaltake Xcontroller X2140 Multicolour - 12.87 from leftclicks

Sapphire Radeon X300SE PCI-EXPRESS 128MB DDR TV-Out Retail Box - 39.63 (Ebuyer)

Total (with Venice core costing ~100) = 455.38

I am also currently looking for an LCD screen which has no fan controller but has temperature probes and is around 25. Any one know of one, and what do you think of the specs? I will be upgrading the graphics card early next year when the prices of the 6600GT and 6800GT come down.

EDIT: I am actually looking for an LCD screen with a fan controller at the moment

For those in the US: $848.57 USD

Good price for those components.. though I would recommend Asus over ABit. Not to say ABit isn't good.

I wanna overclock so the Abit is the obvious choice, especially as it comes with a Guru clock. I plan to mod the case, by putting an LCD screen on the top and a blow hole on the top so I can check the temperature whenever I want. And also I'm going to put LCDs all the way around the window, light blue ones, so that the window will glow. Any other ideas?

Can you get 6200s in the UK? I don't want to get a 6200 Turbocharge and I didn't realise there were any others. My budget is 500, and with LEDs, an LCD temperature screen and 2 completly silent 120mm fans I am getting to around 480. Anyway, at Chirstmas I am going to put the money left and all my Christmas money towards a XFX 6800GT, cos my mate has one and they r SWEET!

The only problem is as I am only 13 I can only do paper-rounds, and as my school loves homework and I get back at 4.30 I can only do weekends, so I'm getting about 5 a week, not good for upgrading lol.
