Default my first build any suggestions or comments?

What do you guys think? My budget is $1,500.00-1,600.00
I need everything except an operating system and speakers.
I will be using windows XP Pro.
I plan on placing my order Monday or Tuesdayif everything works out.
Will this system run Doom 3 and Far Cry if I OC the Video Card and Processor?
I will probaly upgrade a year or two down the road but will this get me by for awhile?

EDITED

OK heres what I'm ordering will upgrade VG down the road when the prices lower and I get xtra cash

i think you would need more wattage, you can get the Aspire 520W one from newegg for only 60. the rest, looks ok, i think.

AMD, that mobo is an overkill. Go with the Asus A8V Deluxe, or whichever their most current 64bit mobo is.
