Sound Card - unless you have high quality speakers, no need to upgrade from onboard. Waste of cash...

Ram - go ahead and splurge. Get the 2gb. Otherwise, you'll just be buying it later.

Power Supply - Consider maybe getting one besides the Aspire. Perhaps antec or thermaltake.

I'd get sick to my stomach buying ram for that much. That's like 60% more than what I paid for my processor.
