Well, you didn't give us any basic information like the intended use of the build or a budget, but it is a nice all-around build. I would up the PSU to the 750TX if you plan on adding another 4870 in crossfire later.

^+1 Why_Me's build. With the difference in budget, I would look to upgrade to the Am3 955 BE, which will still keep you within budget

AM3 955 BE

I would recommend against a Core2 Duo build at your budget. 1.) You will have a better overall build with an AM3 do to the better pricing. 2.) The Core2 Duo is EOL, so you don't have an upgrade path, where the AM3 is a current chip set and should provide an upgrade path for a few years.

These are my opinions, so take them as you will
