I'm trying to build my first PC on a tight budget trying to make an okay profit off it and well as hands-on. I chose these components and you can criticize or praise my judgement -- both are great, and tell me how much do you think it should go for. I'm thinking 350. Thanx

Celeron Dual Core 2.60Ghz 1MB/800Mhz
HDD Seagate Barracuda 7200.12/8MB (what is the .12) SATA-300 250GB
PC5400 2GB/667 DDR2 RAM Dual Channel
Audio - Realtek ALC883 5.1 channels

Optical Drive
Light Scribe DVD Burner SATA:
DVD Read 16x
CD-R 48x
CD Read 48x

550W PSU
Gigabyte Ethernet
1 Mouse Connector
1 Keyboard Connector
1 Serial Port
1 Parallel Port
4 Rear USB Ports
1 LAN Port
Audio Jack Output
1 VGA Port
One S/PDIF Connector
1 PICe 1x Slot
1 PCIe x16 Slot
Video Intel GMA3100

I had plans of this 15" flat screen display with a 2.0 4-port USB Hub, as well as keyboard and mouse, but that's over my budget.

So how much do you think without the monitor, keyboard, and mouse, and how much with? I'm just trying to get an opinion from someone who builds, repairs, and sells for a living. In the attachment is the pic of the case. The case says 2 front USB ports, but the motherboard don't, so I'm assuming it's still only 4 rear ports. Thanx a lot!
