The case, of course you will have no problems, but there are better cases around, like coolermaster and antec, but a case is a case. I'd go for more ram, cause 512 to 512 isn't an upgrade, and these days you should have at least 1GB.

Seagate harddrive prices are alright, you might also want to check out some Western Digitals, there very good and well priced. I'll let some other people answer the rest.

It is pointless getting a 512mb video card of the version you have selected.

256 mb should be more than adequate and will be about the max that gpu will be able to utilise effectively.

With the savings, see if you can kick up some other component.

Just to clearly state I was talking about RAM on the motherboard, Sazar is talking about on the videocard...

Go big on RAM, I would try to find a mother board that supports ddr2, and buy 1 gig or more.
He would have to get a different processor as well.

he would have to go intel if he wanted ddr2 right now.. or could wait until june-ish when amd comes out with the AM2 socket..
