I presume you have checked that your motherboard will support the Sempron processor? If so it appears ok. Also consider this click here it appears to have an AGP slot so you could buy this instead and add a graphics card and a hard drive. May be cheaper.

Can't help thinking you are over egging on the GFx card and under specing on the CPU.
Is there another CPU/GFX combo which will fit the bill e.g a 6600 Gt card and also I would advocate you buy 1Gb of Ram.

I decided against my original choice and gone with: Graphics_ 7600gt
Processor - amd athlon 64 3000
Motherboard - Ecs socket 939
Hard drive - 80gig
Ram - SAME
