make the PSU atleast 350W which can be used even if you plan to buy more components

You could also go in for 512 mb ram.. the difference between the price of 256 and 512 is very negligible but the difference in performance is huge....

Affordable is a relative term as much as money is a relative means of exchange. For Bill gates, anything is affordable. For us, the definition of affordable is a bit different.

Basic laws of economics :p
