New Build?

Most new cases will have at least two USB ports on the front.

I'm not sure what your local prices will be like, but i'd go for:

Core2Duo E6300

Gigabyte 965P S3

2GB PC5300/6400 (DDR2 667/800, CAS 5, nothing too fancy)

320MB 8800GTS (if you can stretch the budget that far, otherwise a 7600GT)

Case & quality 400w psu (20A+ on +12v or combined +12v rails)

You didn't mention if you needed hard drives or optical drives, floppy etc.

The 320MB 8800GTS is currenly the best bang for buck card available, far surpassing the performance of the 7900GS.

If you need to keep the budget in check, the 7600GT will save a reasonable chunk of cash and doesn't lag too far behind the 7900GS. It'd also be a better choice if you were to upgrade to a faster card in a few months time.
