An HD 4850 is a perfect card between the $100-$200 range.

Thanks gt7sanremo, I'm having a hard time deciding on what ram. Here is what I am looking at.
Newegg.com - G.SKILL PI Black 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Desktop Memory
Newegg.com - OCZ 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Desktop Memory
Newegg.com - OCZ Reaper HPC Edition 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Desktop Memory

I won't overclock the ram. Lastly is this a good hard drive?
Newegg.com - Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 ST3500320AS 500GB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive - Internal Hard Drives

Is the cache size really important or will 16mb be fine.
Thanks should be the last questions I have.

That hard drive is very good. 32mb cache makes for a faster hard drive, but 16 isn't bad.

Yea, that is a good hard drive. But it's up to you, generally bigger the cache size, faster the hard drive.

This MoBo is better.
Newegg.com - GIGABYTE GA-EP45-UD3R LGA 775 Intel P45 ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards

And get a Sapphire 4850, because it's cheaper, and has a better cooler.
