I am going to try my first build and hope I have everything right but would like some sugestions if I have something you dissagree with.

This will be a work machine, a game wont even be installed. I do lots of multi tasking and large image work.

COOLER MASTER Case
XCLIO XClio 450BL ATX 450W Power Supply
intel Motherboard Socket T (LGA 775) Intel 945P
intel Pentium D 820 Processor
Sony DVD Burner
Western Digital 160gb Serial ATA HD
Kingstom DDR2 Ram (2 X 516)
Video Card: AOpen Geforce 6600GT 128MB 128-bit
Internal Card Reader/Writer

What do you think?, am I missing something?

It looks good, you could probably go for cheaper gfx like a x700 you pay extra for the features that only games use on the 6600GT, maybe another gig of ram if you do image editing work. I would go with one of the new samsung p120s spinpoint drives in the 200Gb vareity for best performance and value for money.
The card reader looks iffy try and get one from a more well know company and preferably with a floppy drive. I would read more on the PSU never heard of the brand before, if in doubt by from someone more mainstream like Antec, Ultra or Enermax.
