Looks good but you will want a seperate power supply, ones that are included with a case are generally not that great. I would recommend at least a 700w from a good brand like enermax or antec.

you might also want to sink a bit more money in and go with a better brand of ram, like corsair or ocz. Also I would buy pc2-5400 ram at 667 mhz instead of 533, at 533 you wont see any difference between ddr and ddr2 and you wont get as enhanced performance. Plus with the 667 it will give u some leeway if you want to overclock the conroe to 3 ghz or higher.
