Default New PC build help

Hey guys,
Im looking at upgrading my pc, well actualy building a new one from scratch.

I have found some parts on ebuyer and it would be appreciated if you could have a look over them and tell me what you think.

Im after something that will run COD4 and those latest games, but i am trying to keep the cost down!!!

BFG 8800GT OC 512MB GDDR3 Dual DVI HDTV Out PCI-E Graphics Card - Ebuyer - 8800 GT BFG 512mb
AMD Athlon 64 X2 5000+ (2.6GHz) Socket AM2 1MB L2 Cache OEM Processor - Ebuyer - AMD Athlon X2 5000+ 2.6ghz
Asus M2N-E SLI Nvidia nForce 500 SLI MCP Socket AM2 8channel audio ATX Motherboard - Ebuyer - Asus M2N-E SLI Nvidia nForce
OCZ 2GB Kit (2x1GB) DDR2 800MHz/PC2-6400 Memory Gold GX XTC CL5 DUAL CHANNEL (LIFETIME WARRANTY) - Ebuyer - OCZ 2GB Kit (2x1GB)

In the future i will be looking at maybe watercooling and overclocking but i just want a new system atm because im having so many problems with my current rig!!!!!!

Also i have a 500watt psu, would this be enough??

Cheers guys. Much appreciated!

what kind of psu is it? I would try to get cl4 ddr 800. Either the Corsairs or the ATI OCZ's in your price range
