The motherboard bundle comes with a motherboard, cpu and memory so you don't need the:

Novatech 2GB (1x2GB) DDR3 PC3-10666C9 1333MHz Single Channel Kit

Intel Dual Core E5800 2 x 3.2Ghz 2MB Cache 800MHz FSB Dual Core Processor - Retail

That motherboard also has built-in graphics, so depending upon what you need the computer to do, you may or may not need the:

Asus ATI Radeon HD 5450 1GB Silent DDR3 TV-Out/VGA/DVI/HDMI PCI-Express - Retail

You should tell us your budget is, what you need the computer for and what country your shopping from. Then let us pick your parts for you.

That's a pretty tight budget depending on what extras you need (monitor, keyboard, mouse, speakers) anything you can take over from your old PC (assume you had one) will help, for example optical drives.

I merged your new thread with your old one from yesterday. You don't need multiple threads on the same subject as it can get confusing.
