Default Suggestions for my 1st Build?

I will soon be building my first Desktop PC. These are the details...

AMD Athlon64 x2 3800
Barracuda 7200.8 250GB SATA HDD
Patriot Signature Series 2x512MB DDR SDRAM
Antec Sonata II Case w/ 450 W PSU
Creative Soundblaster Live! 7.1 Channel 24 Bit Sound Card
ATI Radeon x600 XT 128MB DDR PCI/e Video Card
Netgear 108Mbps Wireless Network Card
NEC DVD Dual Layer Burner (IDE)
Logitech Slim Wireless Desktop S500 w/ Media Remote

Total Price = $914.45
(I already have a 19" LCD Monitor)

I am not a big gamer, do you think this is a good system for the price??? Most of the parts are from Newegg. I have not made any purchases yet so if you have ANY suggestions, please please please let me know

hmm looks good, i would go with the MSI K8N NEO4-F, as MSI and DFI are great mobo company's. Even if you dont game a lot i would recommend the 6600GT/X1600pro you never know when you want to play some HL2 or BF2 . Everything else looks pretty good, if you arent OC'ing i would recommend corsair valueselect also.
