Default New Guy

I'm new to building PC's. I got this list from another forum of recommended parts,

Athlon XP 3200+
Asus A7N8X-E Deluxe
Kingston HyperX, 2x512MB CAS 2 RAM
Lian Li PC-7B Case
Thermaltake W0014 Silent Purepower 480W
Gainward nVIDIA GeForce 6800
Western Digital 160GB 7200RPM SATA
TOSHIBA 8X Black DVD±RW

This list was given to me by another person after I told them I'm building the comp. for engineering and basic college uses, and my budget is around $1200. If anybody has any alterations or suggestions, fire away. I'm trying to get as much info as possible befor I start building.. thanks.
