Two problems, im not really sure if you heatsink will fit onto your motherboard and cpu. Secondly rather get 2 stick of 256mb Kingston Hyper X. The reason i say this is that 256mb are single sided sticks and tend to overclock better than 512mb which are double sided.
But eveything else seems to be fine.

how's that pci-e card gonna fit in an AGP slot? unless you didn't know that pci is different than pci-e. i would get an AGP 8x video card and a bigger HDD. i'd stick with the 512 stick of DDR unless you do plan to overclock your ram.

you can get that same video card but agp version for about the same price. Just look up "6600gt AGP" BTW its a nice card. runs high settings on all my games without a hitch. Either get a 10,000 rpm HD or another stick of 512mb.
