Creating a Gaming Desktop

Hey everyone. I just signed onto the forums. HELLO.
I'm looking to build a new computer...
I have chosen a few components...actually pretty much the main stuff that I need...and I need some input on them.
Here are the components...model number and everything.
- Corsair Dual Channel TWINX 2048MB PC6400 DDR2 800MHz E.P.P. Memory (2 x 1024) (0.2 lbs)
- Gigabyte M61VME-S2 NVIDIA Socket AM2 MicroATX Motherboard and an AMD Athlon 64 X2 3600+ 2.0GHz Processor with Fan (Retail) (3.3 lbs)
- XFX GeForce 8500 GT / 256MB DDR2 / SLI Ready / PCI Express / DL DVI / VGA / HDTV / Video Card (1.15 lbs)
That the memory,motherboard+processor, and a pretty nice graphic card.
I need a hard drive(preferably about 100GB...since I already have a 160 gig in my other computer)
I also need a power supply, and a few fans.
And a case, a really good looking case that fits these things.
I believe I can salvage a few parts from my other desktop...but not sure...so a DVD Drive would be nice too(preferably lightscribe...but that's a luxury.)
Currently the things I just put up cost me about 350 bucks which is great.
I'm looking not to spend more than 200 bucks more for all that stuff.
Please help me:D
