humm if you have that card on it will be a chirden gaming rig!!
only like gunbound and stuff like that (even tho i think gunbound is fun)
if you are into like bf2 css un2007 or wow aoe3 you need a better card for sure!!
get a dfi lp nf4 board!!
on new egg is around $120 or a asus a8n e
the cpu is ok
atleast get a 6600 or x800 anything lower than this will not last you long enough be4 you want to change!!
for the ram, having nice ecpansive ram is good but you can get 2x1g cosair for around $180 and that should do must of the game nicely or a good 2x512 if you want (you dont have to oc your ram..... but is better if you do)
for the psu get a 400w or around should be ok for you!!
and do you need a monitor?? if you do dont pick one with high response time!!

A tip on the power supply...
look at the 12+v specs... if threre are 1 or 2 listed the total should be at least 24a (amps) for a stable system.
