Why? If she goes with the GTS 320MB, that will leave enough money saved over, for an upgrade to the 9 series.

That's looking good. But how come you changed the motherboard, from the DS3R to the DS3P. The only thing that the DS3P has over the DS3R, is an extra PCIe x16 slot, which isn't necessary. And it only supports Crossfire.

Even though that power supply is enough, I'd still suggest something with a little more kick. With the XClio GREATPOWER 550w.

For the memory, Corsair is good, but there are others that are better for the money. Like the Crucial Ballistix. Only $109.99 at newegg.

One other thing you might look into is the evga 8800 instead, as they offer the step up program if you decide you want more.
