Default Building my own system - what do ya think

I previous posts I have stated that I've ordered a ready build system from Mesh, but have decided to build my own after reading some horror stories about them in other forums.

I will recieve all the components tomorrow and will build it over the weekend.

Here goes:

Coolermaster Stacker Case
480W Enermax Coolergiant AX Series Power
AMD Athlon 3500+ ( 939 )
Thermaltake Venus 12 Heatsink fan + Arctic Silver 5
Gigabyte K8NSNXP-939 Motherboard
Plextor Black 52x CD-RW
Plextor PX-712A
Creative Labs Sound Blaster Audigy2 ZS
Creative Labs Inspire 7.1 T7700 speakers
1GB Corsair XMS
2 * 120Gb Seagate Barracuda (7200rpm,8M) in raid
256MB AOpen Aeolus GeForce 6800 Ultra (actually found one in stock)
A couple os 120 mm fans for good measure

Any comments on this system will be great.
Thanks
