if the computer you're building is the one in your specs, then... personally, I'd get at least 512mb of ram - corsair, kingston... ohh yeah, and get rid of the pentium =p other than that, you're good to go lol

For more explaination on the various hardware available now, you can try http://www.ocarena.com

and yes, you should get at least 512MB RAM.
Do you intend to overclock? there are a few more hardware considerations if you want to. look out for your RAM speed ie ddr400 / ddr433 / etc and you will want to get a 3rd party heatsink fan as well.
