I don't know how long that computer will last you. That would be a better media/internet computer. You need AT LEAST a budget of $500 to build a decent computer. You could build this computer now and not be able to play any of the newer games on it. Or, just save up a little more and build something decent that will play most game on medium settings.

Good job! That will all work together. Only two changes I would make. I would suggest getting the Foxconn M61PMV AM2+/AM2 NVIDIA GeForce 6100 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard. It's from a better manufacturer than Jetway. I would also suggest getting the EVGA GeForce 8600 GTS. The 7300 you selected is a low end card and the 8600GTS will give you much better gaming performance.
