Thanks all, especially Moriendor for the extensive reply. Huh, didn't know about the CPU-integrated graphics- goes to show how little I have followed the development in the past 7 years. I'll try and read up on the components you named, and going for the newer chipset sounds reasonable.
My old monitor(s) are just that. Old, scratched, VGA, 3:4, and low native resolution. It would be a shame to not get a decent monitor with a system like this. I might scartch the mouse and sound though - the soundcard is mainly with the idea to do some home recording, but maybe that can wait. For gaming I use headphones anyway and I am no sound junky.
I'll think about the case - although I must say that i really like it, so maybe I'll end up going with it anyway. But it is probably a big saving opportunity.
