It looks good, though I do suggest getting an AM3 only motherboard and some DDR3 RAM. AM3 is newer and most motherboard manufacturers are transitioning to it. Eventually, AM2+ motherboards will not be updated to take newer AM3 CPU's. You can still use that motherboard you chose, but you will have more future upgrading options if you go AM3.
