Looks good. You don't need a CD and/or DVD writer? You might as well just get one (unless that already is one). Where are you ordering from? NewEgg.com has awesome service. I had my stuff a day early, and it was at my door in the morning instead of afternoon.

OMFG.... RwetGuy... he is on a budget... 2GBs is like what I have... jeez... I mean... maybe if his budget was 2K or something... give him a little break here.

Will, here you go, here is that parts list I promised you. Ready to ROCK?

CASE: I usually don't do this one for people, but here is what I think looks neat for a good price.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811213011
If you don't like this case, NP, find one you like in the same price range!

RAM: This is NOT Value RAM, this is the BEST RAM...
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820146890

CPU: Hard Decision, but I would say go with this little monster, and then OC it using the board below!
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103502

Motherboard: The GRAND RESISTANCE! MUHAHAH! OC this ASUS users!
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813127197
TURN OFF THE AMD COOL AND QUIET!! ITS NOTHING BUT TROUBLE!

PowerSupply: Best AROUND BABY! Lots of extra features and ROCK SOLID STABLE RAIL VOLTAGES!
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817193001

Hard Drive: I don't own one of these, but they are on my next purchase list, they have great reviews.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822152017

Graphics Card: If you plan on upgrading in the future, then get a card that can play everything on HIGH quality with NO (ZERO) LAG and high FPS that is just to get you by. Namely... the INFAMOUS 6600GT card. Ask anyone on here, these things SCREAM for the money.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814127147

Speakers: Good sound for the price.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16836121118

Monitor: The MAX RESOLUTION on this monitor is VERY GOOD. I would really recommend this one. Although, it does push your budget out of the way a bit.. but not much.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824149010

Keyboard: Logitech makes good crap. Cheap and good enough to type.... LMAO!
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16823126170

Mouse: This mouse makes gaming a breeze. No matter how fast you move, it follows. GREAT MOUSE I TELL U!!
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16826104150

TOTAL PRICE WITHOUT SHIPPING:
$1,000.87

WITH SHIPPING:
$1,065.12

Sorry it is wee bit over, but this setup will SCREAM and Overclock like CRAZY, and all the parts are of the highest QUALITY you can buy.

Dude 1 GB is plently. Thing about ram is. You can upgrade it easly later on. So just save up and buy a extra gig and you'll be ahead of the game
