Will this combo be OK for D40?

The combo would be Manfrotto 055X ProB + Manfrotto 486RC2 compact ball head. It would be supporting a D40 and at the moment the 18-55 kit lens, in the future there will be other lenses but unless I win the lottery there wont be any heavy pro lenses,of course if that happens I will buy a Gitzo! The most likely scenario is something of the size/weight of a Sigma 50-150 being the heavy end of the kit.
Thats AU$229 for the legs + AU$109 for the ball head = $338 +postage
Have I got my toe in the water here? Is this a stable enough platform for my kit?
