Drop the case and power supply. Get these. Better quality and more efficient.

I like the base, same mobo and CPU that I have for my new build. I've heard that both are pretty solid. The only things that really stuck out at me are the case and the video card. If you want to stay and that price range and still want a really reliable case with high build quality, I would recommend the Antec 300 over that Rosewill. It's small but it moves air like a Hoover. It can be found here:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811129066

Secondly, are you a big gamer? If you are, I would probably tell you to grab something other than that 9600. I could be mistaken, but I saw a 'For Sale' thread selling two 9800GTX+'s, or better yet, buy an HD 5770. It's still pretty affordable but with brand new technology.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814150447
The Sapphire card is sold out, but I would buy Sapphire before XFX.

Finally, a mouse. You're undecided on it now, but this might sway you. The best mouse I've ever owned (and still do):

I really like the mouse you suggested nothing caught my eye from newegg mouse wise. Gaming ehh not a big gamer ,but i'd be looking to pull a decent frame rate if anything. i'm not sure on the graphics card though.

The Case change suits me besides the fact of the LED's (thast hte only thing i liked about the rosewell case) do you know the price of blue LED's?

The build looks good, except that case, video card and PSU.

Like these guys mentioned before, go for the Antec 300.
Get the 5770, and the Corsair PSU.

First of all, I bought the last Sapphire 5770 off Newegg, seriously. I ordered, and just a few minutes later when I was browsing, it showed as being sold out. No more $150 5770's!!

Secondly, it looks like that mouse has a cord. Is this 1999? LOL

Wired mice are better for gaming, and in my honest opinion, are better overall. There's nothing wrong with having a wire...
