Thumbs up Picked out my system... Approval please?

Got all my parts off newegg, with shipping will be under $700 . I thought someone said it couldn't be done?

Tried to post wish-list link but I think its cookie-based so I can't.

RAIDMAX Mustang Black ATX Mid-Tower Case with 420W Power Supply, Model "ATX-889WBP" -RETAIL
$46

GIGABYTE "GA-K8NS Ultra-939" NVIDIA nForce3 ULTRA Chipset Motherboard For AMD Socket 939 CPU -RETAIL $116
ROSEWILL RADEON 9600 Video Card, 256MB DDR, 128-bit, DVI/TV-Out, 8X AGP, Model "RW9600-256D" -RETAIL $89

AMD Athlon 64 3000+ 1.8GHz, 512KB L2 Cache 939-Pin 64-bit Processor - OEM $153

Mushkin 184 Pin 512MB DDR PC-3200 - Retail $67

Western Digital 160GB 7200RPM SATA Hard Drive, Model WD1600JD, OEM Drive Only $99

SONY Black 16X DVD-ROM Drive, Model DDU1613/B2s, OEM $24

Sony Internal 16X DVD+/-RW / Double Layer Drive Black, Model DW-D22A-B2, OEM $62

TOTAL: $657.83

Didn't get a sound card though, can anyone suggest a good one for cheap? Also do I need some kind of USB controller or something to use the USB ports? Thanks a bunch!

no, it has come to my attention that its quality is crap, however www.anandtech.com would not recomend it if it was crap.
