$500 build for parents.

My parents asked me to come up with a tower for them that would fit within $500 and this is what I've come up with.

I tried to go for the best rated parts I could without going over $100 on any one thing. I also went with parts and brands that are reputable for being just plain awesome all around or good bang for buck. What do you think? Would anything conflict? (Like the FSB for the chip being 800 MHz, but the FSB on the Mobo being 1066 MHz)
