Default How did I do for a budget build?

-550 aspire psu (have a 500 dual 12v rail antec smartpower chilling here waiting to go in)
-DFI Infinity mobo
-AMD 64 3200+ socket 939 stock 2.0
-XFX 256mb ddr3 6800GS 485/1100 stock
-2 x 512mb Mushkin Enhanced performance dual channel running 200mhz
-Seagate 7200rpm 160gb

Should I be disappointed with 4791 in 3dmark05?

That 3200+ is awesome just got one for my kid and man does it stay cool like 24*c Idle temps and 34*loads.I have three fans and stock cooling hook-up but still cools good.
Ohh yeah pretty nice setup.I dropped in 6800gs in SLi alos with the 3200+ also and man do those perform well.BTW what case did you get .

How did I do? My specs are below...
Mine cost about 1000$ with the speakers and the X-Fi (720 without.)
(That is 300$ right there: X-Fi platinum - 185$ Speakers - 135$)
