Default This build look ok?

I have looked around a bit and this is what i came up with by myself, let me know what you think.

MOBO - ASUS M2N-SLI Deluxe Socket AM2 NVIDIA nForce 570
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131013

CPU - AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+ Windsor
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103735

RAM - Corsair VS 2 x 1gb 240 pin DDR2 667 (PC2 5300)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820145098

H.D. - W.D. 160GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822144415

GPU - eVGA Geforce 7600GT 256MB PCI Express x16
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130017

PSU - Antec True Power 550W
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817371002

If I decide to run 2 video cards, will that PSU do the job?

You need to rethink your build and change your whole list.

Can you explain to me why? What did I do wrong exactly? If you have better suggestions for a build that is under $1000.00 I would be glad to hear them.

First of all there is no reason to buy an AMD processor right now when you can get a core 2 duo. Get ram that runs at least 800 mhz. Get a better video card and a bigger hard drive. There are better power supplies and get a different motherboard that supports core 2 duo chips. I just noticed that you have a $1,000 limit so that might be a reason for the parts you have chosen. You can still do better than that with a $1,000 dollars.

Is it possible you can build me a computer with links? I trust going off your build more than I do mine. Besides i have never built an Intel.
