Default My Build Thus Far.. Please Critique


Building my 1st PC. Exciting! Here's what I'm getting. Any suggestions?

ASUS A8N-E Socket 939 NVIDIA nForce4 Ultra ATX AMD Motherboard - Retail

AMD Athlon 64 X2 4400+ Toledo 1GHz FSB Socket 939 Dual Core Processor Model ADA4400CDBOX - Retail

Seagate Barracuda 7200.9 SATA NCQ 3Gb/s ST3160812AS 160GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive - OEM

OCZ Value Series 2GB (2 x 1GB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM DDR 400 (PC 3200) Unbuffered Dual Channel Kit System Memory Model OCZ4002048V3DC-K - Retail

Haven't picked out the case or video card yet... going to recycle a dvd burner i already have

Can anyone critique me on these items thus far and perhaps recommend a PCIe X 16 video card for today's gaming? Price is not an issue. anything less than $400

Get this ram instead (lower latency)

Get a 6800GS or a 7800GT
