There is no point in 2gb of RAM unless your running SQL server. Down it to 1GB and put the money on something else. Other than that, it looks good to me.

Might be a point to it in the future man. Like I said in a different thread, at one time people said "there is not point to having 256 MB of RAM. Just get 128 and spend the money on something else."

Btw, longhorn might require 1gb of ram, so people might say that 1.5 is needed for games on longhorn. Maybe, I don't know.
