Default First build...

Hello, I am a new to building Pc's but not new to Pc. I just want to know if my spec's are very good. I don't want just a ok responce, I hope that they are up to par, par being a hole in one!

Case XION XION _ Solaris XON-403
CPU AMD Athlon 64 X2 4600+ Windsor
GPU eVGA 512-P2-N568-AR 7900GT KO 512MB
Ram CORSAIR XMS2 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2
Hdd Western Digital Caviar SE16 WD2500KS 250GB
CD/DVD Pioneer Black x2
Cooling APEVIA(ASPIRE) CF12SL-UGN 120mm x2
PSU Antec SmartPower 2.0 SP-500 ATX12V 500W
Extra Microsoft Keyboard + Mouse

This all is about $1200 off newegg. I will probally find the fans elseware becasue they cost 15 each, shiping included. I just want to know if it will be a good build in a few months, if not what should I change.
P.S. The 2x means I getting two of them.

Where is the Operating System?

I recommend Windows XP Pro OEM for that machine, should cost about $100.

Don't use Linux for that gaming machine.

I already got the OS, this maybe my first build but it isn't my first PC. I plan to use my freiends OS **** until Vista. It won't be long because I am not building right away. It will be a few months so I can get the money. By then everything will go down in price. i also may upgrade. I might get nvidia 6 mobo if they are out then and get a direct x 10 video card as well but this one will sure do the job for a few years.
