Default Suggestions on new pc build!!

this is my second computer build, first time posting here. i just like to get input and comments. please post anything you think about it. thanks.

so far, i have this:

-Antec Three Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
-ASUS 20X DVD±R DVD Burner with LightScribe Black SATA Model DRW-2014L1T
-AMD Athlon 64 X2 5400+ Brisbane 2.8GHz Socket AM2 65W Dual-Core black edition Processor Model ADO5400DSWOF
-Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 ST3250410AS 250GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive
-mushkin 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500)
-MSI K9N2 SLI Platinum AM2+/AM2 NVIDIA nForce 750a SLI ATX AMD Motherboard
-COOLER MASTER Real Power Pro RS-650-ACAA-A1 650W ATX Form Factor 12V V2.3 / SSI Standard EPS 12V V2.91 SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply

Switch out the Antec Three Hundred for the CM Centurion 5. Far better case in my opinion. Great choice on processor . Instead of the Seagate I would pick the Samsung Spinpoint F1. Memory choice looks fine. Instead of that motherboard, I would go with a 780G chipset. You won't really need 650W so I would go with this Antec. Unless you love your music a lot, you won't need a sound card. Lastly, with some money saved, I would get the HD4850 instead of the 9600GT.

P.S: SLI only gives you an increase of 40% in performance. An HD4850 would easily out-do 2 9600GTs in SLI. If you want you can even upgrade to an HD4870.

+1. Except his graphics card choice depends on what his monitor's native res is.
