It seems ok, but if you're going to set up a RAID get 2 7200RPM hard drives. I'd get the Athlon XP 1800+ and two 7200RPM hard drives instead.

AMD technology + Intel technology = Intel/AMD Pentathlon IV; the <b>ULTIMATE</b> PC processor

Why 2 motherboards?
You building 2 system?
Configuration looks good.
One 7200rpm hd better in access time, two 5400rpm hds you get a little better throughput.

Are those the actual brand names of the motherboards? If so, I'd stay away from them. Top-tier mobo makers for me, only! :) 

Otherwise, looks good. I'd go for the Barracuda IV over the 5400 RPM WDs.

The 2themax is actually Epox, I'm sure navyseals is from HongKong, and I don't know why Epox is named 2themax in HongKong.
