Looks good though i would go with the X2 3800+ and a better psu. Try to get the antec truepower 550W power supply. Switch teh XFX video card to an eVGA one. Maybe you should go with some corsair XMS ram as corsair is made for asus.

2GB of RAM isn't really neccessary and you should get a better PSU

Some games are memory hogs so 2 gig will help such as BF2 and FEAR. More RAM the better especially if someone does graphical work or doing many tasks.

Games use more than 1gb's now, so in the future alot of games will - a example is FEAR used 1.25gb's.

XMS - are you sure? cringes...
