Popping the 'Build your own' Cherry

Hi folks,

I am considering upgrading to a new PC and I am after some help. The one I have now, while been a good workhouse, is getting a bit long in the tooth. So after looking round a few shops etc I decided to hell with buying 'all in one' and go for a barebones PC. So, the current idea I have is this.

Athlon II X4 620
NVIDIA MCP61P Motherboard
4GB of memory
ATI Radeon HD4650 512mb GPU

I mainly use my current one for t'internet, a bit of video converting and a little bit of gaming, usually RPG's RTS's, few emulators and have it running off my 720p Projector.

I chose the GPU as it has an HDMI out socket for my amp.

Looking round about £300 and thats including a HDD. Not bothered too much about masses of GB but above the 100gb will suffice. So, any suggestions?

£300 might be tight for overall. Do you have an O/S, case? powers supply or are you adding those in next?

Yeh got W7 OS, no case though. I have actually just ordered it and also included a 160 gb HDD and a DVD drive with lightscribe. Including delivery tomorrow (Sat) it came to £326 with case too. Oh and that was with the 1gb GPU rather than 512mb
