Default Advice on my build?

So here's my build...shooting for 1k or close to it, did a little research but I'm new to building and have never been too great with hardware. I'd really appreciate any info/advice.

My main concern is if everything is compatible with everything else. I'm also wondering if I need that Power Supply...The case comes with a stock 420w but since this is all for gaming I'd probably need more...if I can get away with cutting it down anywhere I'd really like to throw on an LCD. Trying to keep it close to 1k. Thanks in advance

Case - APEVIA (ASPIRE) X-Infinity ATXB6KLW-BK/420 Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case ATX 420W power supply

HD - Western Digital Caviar SE WD2500JB 250GB 7200 RPM 8MB Cache IDE Ultra ATA100 Hard Drive

Mobo - ASUS M2N-E Socket AM2 NVIDIA nForce 570 Ultra MCP ATX AMD Motherboard (really I have no idea what to look for in a mobo other than socket, PCI 16x slots and size)

Video - eVGA 256-P2-N584-AR Geforce 7900GT KO 256MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 Video Card

PSU - ePOWER EP-520XP-C1B ATX12V 520Watts Power Supply 100 - 240V UL, CSA, CE, CB, FCC

Processor - AMD Athlon 64 X2 4600+ Windsor 2000MHz HT 2 x 512KB L2 Cache Socket AM2 Dual Core Processor

Memory - CORSAIR XMS2 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM Unbuffered DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit System Memory

Total price - $1050

Should be great for games...dunno about compatability, that's all
