Default Will this work and is it worth it?

Hi. this is my first post and my first attempt at building my own pc.

i wanted your opinions and views on if its worth spending the money. i wanted to upgrade so i can play games better and play like diablo 3 when it comes out. other than a heat sink these are the pieces i picked for it. will it work and is it worth it?

motherboard

Those look fine except for the case/PSU combo. They are low quality and I wouldn't trust the power supply as far as I could throw it. This costs a bit more, but is a much better quality: Rosewill R218-P-BK-450W ATX Mid Tower Computer Case, come with 1x 120mm Fan, 450W Power Supply

Do you have a video card picked out?

i had one but my cousin said the on board graphics card was pretty decent in itself. i dont need hard drives i have an 80 and a 500 im going to put in it. the case seems viable. would a graphics card be required?

You need better ram that will work with that motherboard.

If you want to play games like Diablo 3 you will definitely need a video card.

the rosewill case doesnt seem to have a lot of air flow. it seems very basic and closed with just basic vents.

can you suggest a few video cards? i am kind of on a budget lol
