Does this look an OK budget build? - Looking at about £125 (Ive already got a SATA HDD, CDROM, and A/V cards from another PC).
It will be an upgrde from my old box, a dell 3ghz Pentium IV with 3gb of DDR2, which has died.
Case/PSU: http://www.novatech.co.uk/products/components/cases/nov-aura.html http://www.novatech.co.uk/products/components/powersupplies/nov-psu450.html
Should I go for a bigger, ATX case? There is one with a 500W PSU for only a fraction more.
Are MSI boards crappy?

A few questions 1) How does DDR3 work, does it have to be in pairs? 2) Will the PSU be powerful enough? 3) Will that mobo fir the case? 5) Anyone got experience with any of these parts?
