Can someone just check this please?

I'm building my own computer, can some just check that these parts will go together for me please? I'm about to order it, but I just want someone to check compatability for me.

Enermax Technology Corporation 430W ATX 2.03 AMD/P4 Fan Adjust
Cooler Master SoA XP3200+
ASUS SoA nForce 2 ATX A L
Samsung 16*DVD, 52*52*24 Internal IDE OEM
PNY GeForce FX5900 Elutra 256MB DDR AGP RP DVI VIVO
AMD AthlonXP 3200 + 2.2Ghz 512Kb SoA 400FSB (might have to get the XP3000)
Western Digital Caviar 250GB SATA150
Crucial Technology 512MB 184pin DIMM PC3200 DDRRAM ECC-Registered CL3
Cooler Master Tower - No PSU
Creative Audigy 2 ZS Platinum Pro PCI
Mitsumi 1.44MB internal 3.5"

Yes I know this is a long post, and I know I've got an FDD but I do use it to take stuff to other people who might not have USB for pen drives.

Only thing I can think of is to be on th safe side and get a 550PSU given the high powered components. Also you might one to add another h/d sometime in the near future and the higher PSU will ensure that you are able to cope with the upgrading.

I'd save yourself over £100 by getting the XP2800 Barton and slightly overclocking it up to 3200 spec, and spend some of the savings on more memory - that was the approach I took a few weeks ago when building a similar spec PC. Just my opinion.

Very nice PC indeed, however for that extra kick of graphices power I would get an ATI 9800 pr or XT, they blow the geforce cards out of the water in most respects and are roughly the same price.

just to be sure, what model is the motherboard?

Which should be Ok if it has a 400Mhz FSB.

Also, if you are a first time builder good luck and be careful with that spec, it costs a lot of you mess it up.

Not really interested in the overclocking route, had problems with my old computer doing this. It's OK now but I just don't want the hassle.
I should have put that I'm getting two sticks of RAM, totalling a Gig.
I am going to put a second hard drive in, just when I get the money.
This is not my first time build, but I will probably take it to college for a Hardware lesson and get the teacher to watch what I'm doing just to makes sure!
The graphics is PNY because they have a good reputation and have won quite a few awards, and it is slightly cheaper.
PSU - Will get the 550W PSU just in case, also had this suggestion from some1 at college so will follow this route.

that should have read "To all you helpful people.......".
Some1 shoot me please!
