Default Good setup?

I need to upgrade my desktop and I think this setup looks good. What do you think?
Motherboard - Asus M2N-SLI Motherboard CPU Bundle - AMD Athlon 64 X2 6400+ Processor 3.20GHz
Video Card - EVGA GeForce 8800 GT Video Card - Dual Slot Edition, 1GB GDDR3, PCI Express 2.0, SLI Ready, (Dual Link) Dual DVI, HDTV
Ram - OCZ SLI-Ready Dual Channel 4096MB PC6400 DDR2 800MHz Memory - planned to 8gigs.

All copied from tigerdirect.com
Plan on using two vid cards eventually.
Would also like to know is the 512mb card any different then the 1gig besides the extra 512. I mean is it worth it?

Looks good to me.

Unless you're planning on playing your games at ultra high resolutions, the 512MB 8800GT will be your best bet. Besides, they are faster overall then the 1GB version.

Those are nice. They are essentially a rebadged 8800GT with the addition of an extra SLI connector for 3-Way SLI support. It performs the same as the 8800GT 512MB.
