The only thing I am worried about is that power supply. I have had some BAD expieriences with Rosewill. I would recommend Antec, ThermalTake, OCZ, or Ultra.

If you want a non-pc get a Dual Core intel processor as they are much cheaper and preform much better in coding and stuff like that. The Athlon X2s are a good alround processor for gaming a multiple tasks it up to you if your ever gonna play a game i would get an Athlon X2.

They arent really cheaper for intels X2s often win out because they are cheaper and you can get faster than an equivalent intel.

i saw on ebuyer there was a pentium D dual core for 100quid. If I were you I would get a Athlon X2 if you were gonna play games or thinking about playing them.

You can get the 2.6 and 2.8s quite cheap but they performed worse than the single core chips when they came out.
