It looks pretty nice. I'm glad you went for a better power supply, instead of choosing those value types.

seems pretty good...

But there are a few improvments i would make.

HD: Western Digital WD1600JS Caviar SE 160GB 7200RPM SATAII/300 8MB Cache - OEM
RAM: Crucial 1GB DDR2 PC2-6400/800MHz CL4-4-4-12 Ballistix 2.2V SLI Ready
MOBO: Asus M2N-E SLI Nvidia nForce 500 SLI MCP Socket AM2 8channel audio ATX (nVidia > Via for chipsets)
PSU: Hiper 580W Type-M Black PSU - SLI Certified with APFC (530W is out of stock)

That will cost a bit more but you will get so much more performance for the .

Since you're going AMD, tighter timings is better than speed. So 4-4-4-12 would be better.

The cache is like a temporary place to hold info, before it is sent out. It serves as the messenger, between the CPU and RAM.

Think of timings as if it were lag or ping. The higher the ping, the more time or delay, it will take the info to be sent and received.

About your 3DMark06 score. I'd say somewhere around 4-6k. With overclocking, maybe 7k.
