Default Moderate Gaming Build - Did I do it right?

This being my first post I will have to say Im quite impressed with these forums and I see why I was told to check them out.

Background info: My orginal rig stopped working in August, and I figured out that it was my Mobo, but I was in the process of starting my secnd year of school. So needless to say I was not in the position to upgrade finacially, I am still a student but I was able to ear mark 1000 for an upgrade. So i went looking to get a decent but moderately priced gaming rig. With the help of some friends advice this is what I have ordered.

CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E6750 Dual Core Processor LGA775 Conroe 2.66GHZ 1333FSB 4MB Retail - $198.57

I also picked up a OEM version of XP, thats what this new rig will be running on so all told with shipping, and tax I got this for $976.12

I already have:
