you have all the parts but I see that your aftermarket heatsink is for a socket A and your processor is a socket 939 so it won't work.

Also, you don't have to buy a power supply, since the case you selected already comes with one.

Oh crap, Forgot about it. No, DDR2 does not work on DDR based motherboards.

i would either buy skt. 939 or AM2, AM2 is newer and better (more upgradable and things like that for the future), but idk anything about skt A

if u wanted AM2, you would need to get the AM2 3800 X2 (pretty much the same price) and an AM2 motherboard (which might be a little more money)..then you would also need to pick different memory that's compatable with the motherboard you chose (it would be ddr2..probly ddr2 800). im pretty sure everything else should be compatable
