Default Is this good?

Ok i'm going to be building my custom gaming comp and i want to know if the build i have going is good for gaming.

eVGA Geforce 7800GTX 256-P2-N538-AX
ASUS A8N-SLI Premium Socket 939 NVIDIA nForce4 SLI ATX AMD
AMD Athlon 64 3500+ Venice 1GHz FSB 512KB L2 Cache Socket 939
NEC Black IDE DVD Burner Model
Maxtor DiamondMax 10 300GB 3.5

Do you think this is a good price, or I should change somthing?
All opinions would help me out.

Someone needs to make a sticky thread with "good gaming hardware."

Bascially, you can't go wrong with a DFI Lanparty SLI-DR and a AMD 64 4000+.
