Wow i bought the same exact emachines computer just about 3 months ago. I upgraded it until i got what's in my sig. I like the case and the PSU is good too. I think you should get one stick of 1GB ram since s754 doens't support dual channel and in the future, you can get another stick to make it 2GB. For some reason the link to the graphics card isn't working but i can tell you a good card to get in your situation would be a 6800GS http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130258
or a 7800GT http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130256

Woops sorry forgot to add something. Here's a better PSU http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817104954
You get 50 more watts for $10 bucks. And the 6800XT is a huge waste of money, don't get it.
