Default First build...what do you think?

Im getting ready to order the parts for my first build. Here's what I got so far...let me know if any of these parts are not compatible

Raidmax Ninja

Asus Sli Deluxe

Athlon 64 X2 3800+

GeForce 6800GS

Ultra X-finity PSU 500w

Western Digital 120gb 7200rpm
Corsair 1gb DDR 400 ram
Lite-on DVD+R, sony DVDrom
2 120mm fans, 1 80mm
xp pro

How is this power supply? Should it be enough power for everything plus the fans? Also, im a little unsure about what to do for a soundcard. I mainly listen to music, so im just getting a 2.1 system, so will a sound card (audigy 2) even be worth it? I think thats it, if im missing anything please let me know. I would need any extra cables or anything will I? Thanks in advance.

Well the power supply will be enough to power the system but Ultra do not make the highest quality products. I would recomend somethign like Fortron (FPS Group), enermax or antec.

If your just using a 2.1 sound system and the speakers are not ultra good then a sound card might not be worth it but its always good to have one. So if you have some extra money and not knowing what to do with it then a sound card may be a good idea.
