Dreaming a bit. Building a system. Feedback please

Good morning, everyone (=

I'm dreaming a bit and pretending I could actually buy a new system (= This time an AMD and will be my first AMD system too. So I've been doing a little research and hopefully my base components will be composed of the following:

AMD Athlon 64 3500+
ASUS A8V Deluxe Rev 2
2 x 512MB DDR400 Ultra-X Series Geil (Single)
or
2 x 512MB DDR400 PQI
Inno3D GeForce 6800 Ultra

My main concern is stability and I don't overclock, so if anyone knows of any outstanding issues with the combination of those components/brands or if anyone have any tips/comments on how what else I should look out for, I'm all ears (=


Thank you.
