Default New system need some criticism

Hey im just building a system (first system), wanted to know if this was a decent deal, the primary purpose will be gaming. Thinking of OC'ing

amd 64 3000+ 939 ($229)
segate 120gig SATA ($135)
Corsair Value ram 512 PC3200 ($135)
Either a MSI K8N Neo2 Platinum ($275)
or an ABIT AV8 3rd eye ($185)
Sparkle 6600GT (AGP Version) ($349)
Thermaltake Venus12 HSF ($55)

The prices are Australian

Any comments are appriciated
Thnx

lol you said "mate" and you're not Australian.
That's like a white guy saying "bro" to a black guy.

Looks like a good system you have there, a lot of things I purchased as well.

i hear a lot of good thing about both boards, but in my opinion ABIT is better for overclocking.

Abit is exactly the same as MSI in this case, but a lot less expensive, And i would assume Abit's TechSupport is a lot better...but then again what are you here for?
