Question new pc

HI guys I'm planning to build a new pc. I dont really have any experince at all but from what I've heard and read these are the components I'm planning to buy.

-Antec Sonata II W/ 450W smartpower PSU-$99.99
-ASUS A8N-SLI Premium-$163
-EVGA 6800GS-$209
-AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+ -$322
-(2x 512MB)Crucial Ballistix Performance RAM - $155
-Seagate Barracuda 7800.8 250GB SATA - $102
-NEC DVD-RW - $41
-Sony floppy drive - $10
-Artic Silver 5 thermal compund -$6
-Zalman CNPS7000B cooling fan - $30

I want this to be a very general purpose pc. I dont need cutting edge Graphics but I want to be able to play almost everything atleast on medium settings.

What do u guys think?

For a little bit more money you can get 2x1GB Sticks which will help greatly with games like BF2 and F.E.A.R, and all of the graphics heavy games coming out.

I'm willing to spend around 1,300. This does not include a moitor and speakers. I am planning to upgrade to 2 gigs of RAM sometime next year when I get the cash. I just wanted to make sure the PSU will support what have right now.

i wouldnt go with the asus board, i would go with the DFI nF4 ultra-D as you are not going to SLI the 6800GS

everything else looks good, though i would get a separate psu from the case, thoughh antec makes very nice quality psu i dont trust the oens that come with their case
