Go cheap on the case if you want, but get a very good quality psu. You don't want the possibility of a psu issue, especially for a first build.
Corsair, Seasonic, PC P&C, and Antec are good units to start with. FSP if you really have to be cheap.

get 4gb, ram is cheap.

Otherwise good.

I think it would be good if you could tell us what are your expectations and budget to make sure the recommendations go the right way.

The 4GB would be a generic good improvement.
