I like the way it looks, but, I'm a little scared for the PSU. 450W is maybe a borderline, but I'm not sure. If you can, try to get a 520W PSU

Umm.. it might cope, proberly will for a good while. When you do have the spare cash, consider upgrading it, as it will be under a little strain.

That looks good though, not sure if I would choose that case, but it's your choice. As for your DVD drive not being detected, have you tried changing the IDE cable?
