Will this combination work, AMD, ASUS MOBO etc?

Im building a system for the first time... Now I am a computer scientist so I do understand the gist of it all... I would just like some confirmation on my choices of hardware.

Im going AMD as Im on a budget...

ASUS M4A89GTD PRO/USB3 890GX Socket AM3 DVI VGA HDMI Out 8 Channel Audio ATX Motherboard -

AMD Phenom II X2 560 Black Edition 3.3GHz Socket AM3 80w 7MB L2 Cache Retail Boxed Processor -

Corsair 4GB (2x2GB) DDR3 1333MHz Dominator Memory Kit CL9 (9-9-9-24) 1.5V -

Samsung HD103SJ Spinpoint F3 1TB Hard Drive SATAII 7200rpm 32MB Cache -

Samsung SH-S223 22x DVD?RW DL & RAM SATA Optical Drive -

Coolermaster Elite 330 Mid Tower Case
Coolermaster eXtreme Power 500W PSU 3x SATA, 1x PCI-Express -

As its my first build I just want it to go smoothly and be reliable. But if there is any small (priced) upgrades anyone could suggest I would be happy to take them on board Happy

Regards... Tomo
