Bah, broken link.
Ok, made two changes to that list because, (remember, I am new to this), I took a much needed look at the parts and realized I needed a mobo with a PCI express slot if I even wanted to use the video card. I also realized that for all the fans that I want, I'd need a PSU with more outlets than my original choice had. Here are my revisions

Thermaltake TR2 W0070RUC ATX 430W Power Supply 115/230 V - Retail

ABIT IP-95 LGA 775 VIA P4M890 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail 

5. Quad Blue LED 80mm Fan (x3)

I'm basically making (what I think is) a slight upgrade from my old Dimension 3000. Since I'm certainly not looking for, (nor able to afford), top of the line equipment, I think this should suffice until I learn a little more and can accumulate more money to get better parts. I'm prettymuch using it for photoshop and one or two games.
Ok, I went and bought a new case thinking "I'll just take everything out of my existing computer and put it in a spiffy new case and all will be right and well in the world". Wrong. To my dismay, I found that the mobo in my box was anchor'd in there in a way that I can't get around, combined with dell's custom case. I also read quite a few horror stories about boobytrapped PSU's. So now I'm looking at a new mobo and PSU, and I want to know if I need to add a new P4 to that list (please merciful fate, NO!!!).
