I think that I've narrowed down my part choices to the following components. This is the first time I'll be building a machine. If you see any glaring compatibility issues can you let me know?

eVGA 133-K8-NF41 Socket 939 NVIDIA nForce4 SLI ATX AMD
eVGA 256-P2-N518 Geforce 7800GT 256MB GDDR3 PCI Express x16
AMD Athlon 64 3200+ Venice 1GHz FSB 512KB L2 Cache Socket 939
Crucial Ballistix 1GB (2 x 512MB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM
COOLER MASTER Centurion 531 RC-531-SSN1 Silver Aluminum bezel ATX Mid Tower
COOLER MASTER SAF-S12-E1 120 x 120 x 25mm SuperFlo Cooling Fan
FSP Group (Fortron Source) AX500-A ATX12V 500W Power Supply 115/230 V
NEC Black IDE DVD Burner Model ND-3550A

The crucial memory is recommended to go with the evga motherboard. Also I will be reusing my ATA hard drives and PCI sound card for the time being as they are still in good working condition. An extra fan is recommended for the case to keep things cool.

The whole deal is about $900 including shipping from newegg.com. Any thoughts?

There should be no problems and when the PC is up and runnig you'll be one happy bunny :D 

The only thing is I don't know how good the eVGA make is?

the evga mobo is good, decent OCer if you need it in the future, just watch out for that chipset fan, too many of them NF4 fans die and your mobo fries.

Anyway, i assume you are getting this crucial ram right? Good pick for the price and tight timing. If you don wanna spend that much, some crucial value ram is good too.
