Maybe a 1GB stick instead of 2x512MB for future upgrading.

Looking to overclock? See if you can find a nice cpu cooler.

It's got enough RAM slots for that, but again, it's your decision.

I was going to suggest a cheaper hard drive, but Seagate has the best warranties.

It's got enough yes, but 2x1GB would be faster than 4x512MB or 2x512MB + 1x1GB.

I was reading somewhere that dual core runs faster with dual mem, as for OC not educated enough yet
