Default Building computer...

Hey I know I have another topic but that one is practically dead. But i already chose out these parts for a new computer....

ASUS A8N-SLI Socket 939 NVIDIA nForce4 SLI ATX AMD Motherboard

AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+ Manchester 2000MHz HT Socket 939 Dual Core Processor Model ADA3800BVBOX

OCZ Gold GX 2GB (2 x 1GB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM DDR 400 (PC 3200) Unbuffered System Memory Model OCZ4002048ELGEGXT-K

Antec NeoHE 500 ATX12V 500W Power Supply

eVGA 256-P2-N555-AX Geforce 7600GT 256MB GDDR3 PCI Express x16 Video Card

Rosewill R905E-W Black 19" 8ms Widescreen LCD Monitor

CHENMING 901AD-BLACK-0 Black 1.0mm SECC ATX Full Tower Computer Case

NEC 16X DVD±R DVD Burner Black IDE/ATAPI Model ND-3550A

I was wondering if this would hold me off for 2 or 3 years and can I can someone PM me on help with fans and pins or whatever. Like how many fans will I need..... I know new parts will come out but I decided that I build a computer now that will hold me off until i probally get another one a year or so before i go off to college(which isnt in 4 years) I'm planning on buy this at the end of teh summer or next there is plenty of time for me to learn and get help..

Help would be greatly appreciated...

Well I have a few newer games but I am not a heavy gamer. And I decided to pick the parts now because I probally won't even get $1200 by Christmas, but by picking them now the prices will go down.

So do you think this should last a good 2 or 3 years?
