what do you plan on doing with it? if you want to game then you're gonna want a better gfx card, either a 8800GTS G92, 8800GT, or a 3870. also it might behoove you to think about getting a q6600 if you can fit it into your budget

also maybe get some different ram. i believe that that's like value ram, so get some crucial ballistix if you can. or some corsair xms2

You won't need a ethernet or sound card, motherboards have that built it. Your gonna want 2-4GBS of ram for Vista

Yes I agree that you shold change for a better video card and more memory.
You can have a look at the XFX PVT88PUDF4 GeForce 8800GT.
And right now the memory price has dropped a lot, Corsair 2GB (2x1GB) PC2-6400 Dual Channel memory is for $25.
