Looks good to me. The only thing I would change is I would get Corsair XMS instead of that Value Select stuff. Everything else looks great though. Especially that NEC 16X dual-layer DVD drive.

I would suggest a Seagate hard drive if you are going sata. I think they are better and do not have any noise problems. And I agree with beedubaya's post, don't get value select ram, especially if you are going to OC at all. Everything else looks great.

I would also reccomend Seagate drives over Maxtor, not that I don't like Maxtor, but the quality of Seagate Drives are among the best
I suggest instead of getting Value RAM (higher latencies) you should get some XMS or some Kingston PC3200 (as long as it's not value)
the fastest PC3200 RAM is Corsair's XL (Extra Low latencies)
the graphics card will last you a long time before you need to upgrade, although if you want it to be upgradable, I suggest against getting a socket 754 processor, socket 939 is the future of Athlon 64's
I suggest an Asus A8V deluxe and a socket 939 3500+you can get them in a combo here
