Default Small Upgrade, About To order. Any Suggestions?

Hey there guys, im getting ready to order my parts for a partial build :P
Getting MOBO,CPU,Sound Card,RAM, and case and wondering what you guys think of the current build. Any suggestions are welcome...
Mobo-- MSI K8N Neo4-F ATX;

CPU-- Amd Athlon 64 X2 3800+;

SoundCard-- Creative Sound Blaster Audigy 2;

RAM--G.SKILL 2GB (2x 1GB);

Case--COOLER MASTER Centurion 5

I'm already pretty set with the Case and Soundcard so i doubt i will change them unless you guys convince me I've had personal experince with both of them, thats why im so eager to get them...

I'm on a strict budget here so be kind :P
Can you think of anything else i would need besides a PSU,Optical drives,HDD, and Thermal Grease/Paste?

i have keyboard/monitor and stuff im just doing a slight upgrade from current which is horrible... dont bother asking me my specs...

Are you going to be overclocking your CPU any? If so, you might want to look into an aftermarket HSF. Also, downsize your sig before a mod gets you.
