It's not needed.

2GBs of ram is enough, do not go over

A lower Opteron or X2 will suit you fine, your origanal choice is not good

ASUS is a good mobo maker but you don't need a server mobo just get a X2 or entry level opteron and get a 939 mobo

Your video card though I do not entirely recommend will suit you fine and is Vista suppported. But if you don't get a server mobo then you want a 7800 GT
