Question new comp

I just wanted to hear your thoughts on a computer I am going to build.

ASUS A8N-SLI Deluxe ATX AMD Motherboard
AMD Athlon 64 3000+ 1GHz FSB Socket 939 Processor
eVGA Geforce 6600GT 128-P2-N368-TX Video Card
CREATIVE Sound Blaster Audigy 2 Value SB0400 Sound Card
Seagate Barracuda 7200.8 250GB 3.5" Serial ATA150 Hard Drive
NEC Black IDE DVD Burner Model ND-3540A
Rosewill TU-155 Black Computer Case With Side Panel Window

for the memory I wasn't sure if I should go with 2 512s or 1 1gb
CORSAIR ValueSelect 1GB (2 x 512MB)
or
CORSAIR ValueSelect 1GB 184-Pin DDR SDRAM System Memory

It looks good. Go with the 2x512MB Corsair XMS so you can get it into dual channel mode.

Wheres the powersupply? did you forget about the most important part in the computer?
But yeah looks good but I would say go for maybe a 3400 or a 3500 they've come down in price and worth the extra money.

I think the Rosewill case comes with a 400Watt power supply.

thanks a lot everyone. I guess I will go with the duel channel memory. The Roswill case does come with a 400w power supply so Im' just gonna stick with that. I'm also going to stick the 3000. thanks again.
