Default How does this look

First off I'm new to the forums and I would like to say hi. Now time to get to my question. I am looking for a gaming computer for around $600. I went to and build my own computer with a little help from a friend. I am wondering how will this setup work. If you haveany suggestions please tell me.

Case: Raidmax 268 ATX Mid-Tower Case w/350W Power Supply

Power supply: NZXT PF-500 500 Watt Power Supply

Processor: AMD® Athlon-64 3800+ CPU w/ Hyper Transport Technology

Processor cooling: Certified CPU Fan and Heatsink

Motherboard: eVGA nForce-4 SLI Chipset Dual DDR w/7.1 Sound, Gb LAN, S-ATA Raid, USB 2.0, Dual PCI-E MB

Memory: 512MB DDR-400 PC3200 Memory Module

Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce 7600gs 256mb w/ dvi+tv out video

Harddrive: 200 GB HARD DRIVE [Serial-ATA-II, 3Gb, 7200 RPM, 8M Cache]

CD/ DVD drive: 16X Dual Format/Double Layer DVD±R/±RW + CD-R/RW Drive

That all together is about $610 and the games i will be playing are CSS and NFS: carbon. I will also be using this computer to edit videos

Yeah definitly add another 512mb of ram in dual channel, and I would recommend the x2 3800+ as it doesn't cost much more.
