Looks good, but you could always go for 2GB RAM.
Have fun.

Personally I would switch the CPU to a 3700+, change the motherboard to a non-SLI one, sell your 6600GT, and buy a 7800GT. So I think you should get something like this,

DFI LP nF4 Ultra-D
3700+ San Diego
7800GT
1GB of RAM

Just my opinion...

No...

Get a non-sli board, for 70$ less, keep the x2 3800, and get 2gb ram.

AMD x2 3800
6600gt
2gb ram

Get an Opteron 165 over the 3800 X2.

Yeah....I'm pretty sure a 7800GT with 1 gig of ram would smoke a 6600GT with 2gigs....

I would go with the X2 3800, new video card, and 1gb of RAM. Also, you may want to change the Optical Drive #2 to a normal CD-ROM, or, get rid of it. The DVD burner can burn CDs too!
