Check the prices for those parts on Newegg.com or similar and see if the difference between the total price of the parts and that quote is worth having someone else build the thing. Frankly, I think you should just bespeak it yourself.

EDIT: Good parts, though, except the video card probably won't be up to the latest games. Good case. I've got one.

Price looks pretty good overall, especially with the RTB warranty- although it may be worth checking HOW its returned. Some companies insist on certain couriers that charge a fortune!
The graphics card definitely needs a boost. If yo ugo for the quaddie, you shouldreally be looking a bit higher up the scale, an 8800 would be more in keeping. Chanced are you may hate yourself for not getting one given the CPU power. Trust me, I know <g>
