Any one see problems with these components

While in the USA visiting family I succumbed to some tempting advertisements and bought the following with a view to building a new system one day. I bought these only because I thought that they were cheap and not for optimum performance - I am not a gamer. Just wanted comments to make sure of compatability. Any comments appreciated.

1. ECS Mainboard NForce3-A (K8 HT1600 nforce3 250)
2. Sempron 2800+ Box with fan
The above bought as a set for $70 Frys Store

3. PNY GeForce 5500 AGP 8x Graphics card 128Mb ($58)

4. Maxtor Ultra 16 250Gb Hard Drive $60
Items 3 & 4 from CompUSA

5. Windows XP Home upgrade retail $80 OfficeMax

Over the coming months as funds permit I plan to buy a case, some Crucial memory, and a DVD writer.

Suggestions for those components appreciated.
