Since I didn't see a processor in there, I assume thats supposed to be the processor since chipsets are not for sale?
There is nothing wrong at all with buying the parts one by one and you seem to have set it up very well so it looks good.
I would still recommend you look into overclocking though. Relatively easily, you can improve the performance of your PC drastically. For example, my 3200+ originally was 2.0GHz and equalled a Pentium 4 3.2GHz processor. However, with some effort, I was able to overclocking it to 2.7GHz which made the processor equal a Pentium 4 4.15 GHz processor. So you can see the improvement I saw. With a 3000+, you should be able to reach 2.5GHz without much effort.
Also, The DFI Lanparty motherboard isn't just for overclockers. Its an excellent motherboard overall and better than 99% of the motherboards out there. I don't want to see you have problems with the motherboard you have so I'm just suggesting a more reliable one. If you still don't like the Lanparty, then look into the MSI K8N Neo4-F.
