You will get more help in this area if you simply post things like this and not all the very little details. Here is a sample for you to follow and if you would post a link to someplace like for each item, that would be even better. Also, list a budget.

Motherboard = Asus P5Q

Video Card = NVIDIA GeForce 8400 GS

Processor = Intel® Processor Q8200

I think this will help you to get assistance. Also always list your brand name and watts of the power supply you plan to use.

looks good but you should have went with a 9300 or 9400 mobo onboard video if any, imo.
also, there is cheap cas4/ CL4 ddr2 pc6400 memory out there that could be had.
