This website, among a bunch others will help you build a good color pallet before you even start the layout process. You can even look around at others pallets for inspiration.

Like this?

Looks like it'd make a great phishing site, lol. It is a kewl idea, though.

I think the boxes should be square, or atleast less round. I would also consider putting the elements closer together so it looks more like a newspaper (more professional looking).

In regards to the colours they are better but i would still watch out for the florescent green...

The bright neon green if not very pleasant. I would tame it down a bit... Make it less radioactive and more calming.

Take a look at this...

Can you give me the # for that color?

Also, do you suggest just making the text that color, or the buttons too?

Well the color is "abda8a" the closest "web Safe" is "99cc99" it is a little bit darker but still looks good.

As for the test San Serif fonts are far easier to read, and they often give a more modern look. Since this site it essentially for gaming a San Serif font is far better, so no times roman.

You could also use a color like "cccc99".

when choosing your colors try and stay away from fully saturated colors like that green. The cause stress on the readers eyes and will cause people to turn away and leave your site. Also be careful with a lot of negative text "dark background whit light text" For short things like the points you have listed it works fine, but try reading a page of that and it is not as nice as a simple white background with a charcoal gray text...

On my 1920x1200 monitor I can see your background tile 6 times (2x vert 3x horizontally).

I used a little too much green compared to your original, but i think the layout holds more weight.
