Default Building New PC

This is what i am thinking of getting
Western Digital Caviar 160.0GB UDMA100
Kingston ValueRAM 2x512MB 184Pin DIMM PC3200 DDR RAM
NEC DVD+-R/RW Dual Layer 8x IDE OEM
Radeon 9600XT 256MB AGP DDR DVI VO
Athlon 64 3200+ S754 512Kb
Gigabyte GA-K8NS nForce3 250 Motherboard

As you can see i am working on a budget of about £500-£600. What do you's think?

Stay away from Kingston ValueRAM, i'd rather use normal DDR400 RAM

It is unstable when put under none-average environments such as slightly higher temperature or different chipsets.
