If I was spending that sort of money, I personally would go to Novatech, and select a motherboard bundle to start with.

The mobo set up that they similair to my set up (athlon 6000, M2N mobo, 2GB RAM) is £60 more expensive than the components I have, so not really worth it.

I have a similar set up to what you are proposing.
But I chose the 590 chipset.
Also as there is hardly any difference in price I chose 6400 memory from Crucial.
The motherboard only has one IDE connector so bear that in mind.
