If you are going to go with the 32-bit Windows system it will only recognize 3GB-3.5GB of the 4GB you are planning to install, and could actually cause problems. I also noticed that Corsair doesn't suggest that RAM for that motherboard, you can see what they suggest here.

I missed this last night, if you scroll down the page it shows all of the modules that will be compatible with that motherboard, and the module that you have listed is on that list. The problem with the recognized amount of RAM still remains though. Have you thought about running 3GB of RAM, 2x1GB and 2x512MB? This would max you out and still be able to run dual channel.

Upgrade to 64-bit Windows Vista, because of the 4GB. But the rest of the PC seems to be good. If you want to upgrade to the next nvidia cards (GTX280) then you will need a 650Watt PSU. If you upgrade.
