    Case: Mediocre Consider replacing with Coolermaster RC-690
    Power supply: Deathtrap YOU MUST REPLACE recommend Corsair HX 520W
    Card reader: Mediocre, but probably will suffice
    Hard drive: Rather specialist, but if you don't need to store much, then it's a wise choice.
    CD/DVD: Do you really need the external drive? Just buy a normal DVD drive and get a USB enclosure for it, if you have to have an external DVD burner
    CPU: Very poor choice. Go with a Core 2 Duo E6750
    Cooler: new CPU socket, so change to Arctic Freezer 7 Pro
    Motherboard: fine with old CPU, but with intel go with GA-P35-DS3R
    Memory: Fine, but recommend Corsair
    Video card: That's not a video card, it's a sound card, but a good one.
    Actual video card: Recommend a Geforce 9600GT
    Monitor: fine
    Watercooling: Don't bother

    I doubt you will need a sound card, I'm sure your motherboard has it built in. I couldn't check though, I couldn't find your motherboard.

    Pretty much every motherboard has onboard sound, but the Audigy is much better at it than pretty much every motherboard.

    I'm kind of repeating what Sam said but please DO go with a core 2 duo.

    Also what are you going to be doing with this computer? Do you really NEED 4GB? For most purposes 2GB should be enough.
