Yes its good, But I would go with either a DFI or MSI motherboard, ASUS aren't that freindly when it comes to AMD's.

what you've got looks good. i thought you were joking when you were asking if it could play games, of course it can. but like the others said don't go over 2gb of ram. make sure its some good quality ram as well look at OCZ. most of all get a good quality psu because with a system like that you don't want a hiccup out of the psu or it might just take your whole system with it.
