Default My new computer, any inputs?

Hey guys, I am building my computer and I ordered everything I needed through newegg. Here are the specs:

DFI Lanparty NF4 SLI-DR Motherboard
AMD X2 Dual Core 4800+ Processor
1GB of Corsair DDR400 XMS RAM
Aspire X-Cruise with built in 420 Watt power supply
Sony 16X Double Layer DVD-Burner (DRU720)
300GB Maxtor Diamond SATA Hard Drive 16MB Cache
EVGA 6800GT Video Card (PCI Express)

It costs me about $1975 with tax and shipping and eerything for it. Was that too expensive? Or was that decently saved? Also, are there any changes you guys think I should make?

If it is for general use thats a nice rig. If you are a gamer Id do:
1.decrease hd size to get some open budget
2.move up to 2gb of ram
3.maybe move up to 7800gtx(unless you are planning on sli'ing down the road with another 6800)

also I've heard some horror stories about maxtor hd's. Might wanna go with seagate or WD(more common choices)

I'm not completely sure if that psu can handle that system. Might want to prepare to buy a new psu.

AMD X2 4400+
DFI NF4 Ultra-D
2 gb OCZ dual channel platinum
512mb 7900GTX (eVGA)
250gb 16mb WD HD
3550a Dvd/cd rw/r (NEC)
Thermaltake Full Alum. Armor Case
