Question Few questions about my build

Well i done alot of research and comparing and finally decided that this is the build for me:
1 MSI K9N SLI Platinum
AMD Anthlon 64bit X2 6000+ 3.0GHZ AM2
1 MSI 8800GT 512MB 256BIT
2 1GB Apacer DDR2 PC667 RAM
1 Arctic Cooling Freezer 64 Pro
1 Western D SATA2 HDD 80GB 8M
1 Cooler Master - Extreme Power 500watts

My question is
1)Should i go for Asus M2N32-SLi mobo or stick with MSI K9N?
2)Will i need an after-market cooling fan for the MSI 8800GT?
3)Is 500 watts PSU enough?

I probably shouldnt post but unless i am wrong

No, if you plan to keep the 8800gt at stock it should provide its own cooling.
You should have enough with that PS as long as your not running two 8800GT on sli, then you might need a 2nd PS or a bigger one, i am not sure.

And are you really going to survive in the gameing world with 80GB hd? If i was you i would look for something a bit bigger.
