Believe me, 1GB is not the way to go right now. Even if it means choosing a slightly cheaper CPU, the 2GB is worth it.

Hmm. . . I like your last list, but I have two suggestions that will keep you in budget.

For the power supply, I would suggest getting a SILVERSTONE ST400 ATX 12V 2.2 400W. It's extremely reliable. Then you can get the G.SKILL 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 that was suggested earlier. It great memory as I have that same kit and it's rock steady.

Most all wire or cables you'll need should come with the motherboard.
