Default Gaming Computer Setup?

Im currently trying to build a decent gaming computer. I looked around and i found what I think to be a decent setup for a computer. I wanted to run it through you guys to see what you think. here is the setup:

ASUS A8N-SLI Deluxe Socket 939 NVIDIA nForce4 SLI ATX AMD Motherboard - Retail

BFG Tech BFGR78256GTXOC Geforce 7800GTX 256MB GDDR3 PCI Express x16 Video Card - Retail

AMD Athlon 64 3200+ Winchester Integrated into Chip FSB Socket 939 Processor Model ADA3200BIBOX - Retail

CORSAIR ValueSelect 1GB (2 x 512MB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM DDR 400 (PC 3200) Unbuffered Dual Channel Kit System Memory Model VS1GBKIT400 - Retail

What i want to know is, is this all compatible together, and will it make a decent gaming computer. It has been a while since i built the one that im using and its kind of going.... shall we say..... dull..... thx in advance for all your help guys.

P.S. Yes, i know the Geforce 7800GTX is a little overkill... but isn't that what we gamers like ;-) a little bit of overkill :-D

wow! so thats all ur getting?
this whole setup in my sig costs me like 1800 on newegg, but im getting some other stuff w/ it
i think you should get a cheap sound card. (if your interested). i hate intergrated. the difference between intergrated and a card is HUGE if you have heard both. so i would get like a $30 or $40 sound card (you can probably find them even cheaper)
