I posted a similar build a few days ago, i took into consideration a lot of your suggestions. Though I wish to stick with AMD. Other than that the main question is will this computer run? Enough power, is everything compatible? I'd like someone to look over my computer before i buy it and if there are any other last minute suggestions im trying to keep it around $2000 i can go a bit over.

Build looks great. PSU is more than sufficient.
You might want to buy two sets of this though:
Newegg.com - Crucial Ballistix 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Retail
