Unhappy Help building a PC under 1K

Hi thank you for your time in advance
Anyway sorry for another help building a PC post... I'm a new to the computer building scene... tried to research before I had the money.... but.... Now that I have some money to toss, I want a new comp... anyway I viciously searched through the forums but little applied to me... a lot didn’t... haha... so I ask for anyone's help
But anyway I have about $1000 to spend... (including shipping) I tried shopping through newegg because a friend told me about it, seems nice... are there any other good sellers

Anyway this is what I have through my searching

ASUS A8V deluxe via K8T800 pro mother board
Athlon 64 3200+
XFX Nvidia Geforce 6600GT 128MB video card
Enermax blue aluminum ATX mid tower w/ 400W PSU
Sony internal dual layer 16X DVD+/-
Hitachi 250gb 7200rpm Hard drive
Kingston 184pin 512MB PC3200

Any opinions, comments, are different set ups are welcome
Thanks in advance
Anthony

What i have so far is:

Proccesser: http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...103-487&depa=0 - 170$
Motherboard: http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...123-220&depa=0 - 110.50$
Graphics: http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...102-281&depa=0 -209.50$
CD/DVD Drive(s): http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...195-504&depa=0 -72.50$
HD: http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...152-015&depa=0 99.50$
Case: http://www.newegg.com/app/viewProduc...145-062&depa=0 39.99$
Sound Card: http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...121-103&depa=0 109$
Ram:http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...144-121&depa=0 110.75

Total: 921.74, this leaves you under your 1000$, and gives you enough for shipping.
