If you are running XP, the ram is fine, but under Vista, you will need 2GB to get good performance (as many people are saying, I'm just going with what they say...never used Vista).
As I also said, the 350W PSU that comes with the case isn't going to cut it, so you will need to buy another PSU with 450-500W.
I don't know what else you may need to upgrade. As far as the graphics card, if all your games are compatible with it, no need to upgrade it.
Yes, you will need a heatsink and fans, add thermal paste also to go in between the processor and heatsink.
