Exclamation How did I do on my friend's computer?

I built my friend this:

CPU: Opteron 180 Denmark
-Thermaltake Big Typhoon
-Arctic Silver 5

GPU: Sapphire X1900XT
-Zalman VF-700

Motherboard: DFI Lanparty Ultra-D

Memory: G.Skill Extreme Series DDR500 2GB

Case: Thermaltake Tsnumai (his choice)
-Thermaltake Hardcano 13
-NEC 3550A Optical

PSU: Forton Source 600w

HD: (2) Western Digital 250GB 16mb Cache

Sound: X-Fi Extreme Music

Monitor: Viewsonic VX922

Accesorries:
-Logitech Z-5500
-Razer Diamondback
-Steelpad S&S
-Logitech G15

He didn't have much of a budget and I did my best, is there anything I should have gone for instead? I told him he could get a Raptor but there was a deal on the WD drives and he torrents a lot so I think he wanted the space. Anyway, how did we do?

It was $3400. All from newegg. Watercooling would be nice haha, but I don't know, just not comfortable with it. Thanks for the compliments though, now I know we did a good job.
