It looks like you're on a tight budget. I suggest, going down to a Core 2 Duo E6300, and upgrading the video card to like a 7600GT, if you're gaming. And the ram is ok, if you're not overclocking. Also, do not use the power supply, included in the case. Get a known brand, or may I suggest the Fortron 400W or 450W. You could probably go down, and pick a cheaper motherboard, like the Gigabyte 965P- DS3.

e6300 will be plenty
gaming depends more on your graphic card than your processor
