Overall, your system looks good.

I would switch to an Abit motherboard.
I am just so impressed with their boards, that I can't recommend them enough.

On the RAM, if you are installing a single 512, it may be cheaper to install 2 256MB instead.
I know that my local dealers charge a significant premium for a single 512MB as compared to 2 256MB DIMMs.

Buy it cheaper!!

Goto!! You will find better specced machines cheaper AND with a years warranty!! Avoid SOYO motherboards like the plague...their USB chipsets are temperamental at worst, many USB devices don't work properly!
