Didn't you post here about your computer build like 2 days ago?
As for the build above, I'd go for more RAM, at least 1 GB it's better in the long run trust me.

Well the info you got last time was from the most experienced folks on this forum so have a look through it because it was most likely useful information.
How much are you willing to spend?

Ok well i'll give you a quick description of what would be a pretty good system:
AMD 64 3200 + (Good solid proccessor you can't go wrong)
1GB RAM, 2x 512mb sticks, have a look round make sure its compatible with your motherboard, Corsair or kingston are good makes
Geforce 6600GT, Another good card, Nice price, Try and go for the 256mb version
Harddrive, make sure its 7200RPM, thats a nice average speed, the size is up to you
For your powersupply i reccomend a 500w supply, but DO NOT pay under $50-60 or it will be... rubbish.

Have a look on www.newegg.com for all this stuff, i'd get you links but i'm kinda busy right now, i hope this helps.
