Might want to do some patch up work with those links, they're pretty broken.

Don't get those speakers.

Instead, use that $60 for 2GB of ram (2x1GB).
You don't have to get DDR2-800. In fact I'm pretty sure DDR2-667 is more productive. Get DDR2-667

For the PSU, go with something a little better. Like this:
HIPER 550W

The motherboard seems fine and your build looks great.
