Yet another new system build please critique

Hey -

I've been looking around the forums here for a while and I have a parts list that I have compiled.
Without further adeu I give you the List:

ASUS M2N Socket AM2 NVIDIA nForce 430 MCP ATX AMD Motherboard - Retail $72.99

EVGA 320-P2-N811-AR GeForce 8800GTS 320MB GDDR3 PCI Express x16 HDCP Video Card - Retail $279.99

ENERMAX Whisper II EG565P-VE FMA(24P) ATX12V Ver 2.0 535W Power Supply - Retail $79.99

AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+ Windsor 3.0GHz Socket AM2 Processor Model ADX6000CZBOX - Retail $169.99

SUPER TALENT 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model $81.99

Creative Sound Blaster SB0570 Audigy SE 7.1 Channels PCI Interface Sound Card - OEM $27.99

I also do not plan on doing any overclocking at all

I did use a PSU Calculator.
According to it my new Rigg is going to need 475 Watts.

I went with the Best Power Supply that I could afford at this time.
535 Watts gives me some headroom as well as good amperage on all rails.

Componets not Listed are being reused
I have 2 sata drives and 2 DVD+/- drives I'll be reusing.
I'll also be reusing my current case
This case has 4 fans in it for lots of cooling

So is this build doomed or will it serve me well??

    Ok heres what I'm looking at changing to,




    Didn't realize they were around the same price.
    All it comes down to is manufacturer at this point and who I prefer.
    I'd like an Asus Board in that price range but I didn't see any at the Egg.
    My Current Asus Board has Lasted 5+ years and is still running strong.
