upgrade advice

Looking for advice. Currently have a Millennia Xku full tower that I want to upgrade. I’m going to keep the DVD-ROM, CD-RW, ZIP, and Floppy. May even keep my video card for awhile, to cut down on the initial expense, as I don’t really do anything graphic-intensive right now (it’s a Viper330).

Here’s what I’ve pulled together. I’d appreciate any constructive feedback, such as incompatibility issues, or overkill issues (“that motherboard won’t work in that case”, “the power supply brand sucks”, etc)
