Looks good except I'd get an Antec Truepower II 550 watt PSU.

Alright then you did something wrong. Antec, Fortron and OCZ are the best PSU brands. Unless you get PC Power & Cooling but thats big bucks.

I would go with the X2 3800+ and overclock it, as the only difference is the clockspeed. Wireless keyboard and mouse :|

Everything else looks good

I'd get an Opteron 165 or 170
they have 2 x 1MB L2 cache

drop the Audigy 2 ZS. either go for a value (there is no difference between the ZS except for the drivers) or go for an X-Fi if you want to go high-end

I'd get an OCZ 520W Modstream PSU aswell
