Everything is fine, except with that motherboard you will need DDR-2 ram. You have plain old DDR right now. Look here

Athlon 64 @ 2.3 ghz
Chaintech mobo
9800 Pro
1 gig RAM
2x 160 gig sata
Audigy 2 zs

yeah, unless you opt for a different mobo. Unless you're getting really high end DDR2, going with normal dual channel DDR is just fine

OK, firstly I would go with the Lian Li PC65, it is AMAZING!
>> Lian-Li 12-Bay Silver Aluminum Case, Model "PC-65"<<
Also, I would advise a slightly better, but smaller monitor.
>>SAMSUNG 172X-Silver 17" LCD Monitor<<
And I don't trust video cards that are not from the company that made the chipset that's in them, although this one is more expensive, I think it would be worth it.
>>ATI RADEON X800 XT Video Card, 256MB GDDR3, 256-Bit, DVI/VIVO, PCI-Express, Model "102-A31904"<<
Also, although the motherboard you selected is fine, spend the extra on this one for a small performance boost:
>>DFI "LANPARTY 925X-T2" 925X Chipset Motherboard For Intel LGA 775 CPU<<
All that will make it better, or, wait till SLI is out and go w/AMD
