Default stock computer

i ordered two of the peices i need for my new computer, current computer is listed below.

mobo: Newegg.com - GIGABYTE GA-P31-S3G LGA 775 Intel P31 ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail

cpu: Newegg.com - Intel Core 2 Duo E6550 Conroe 2.33GHz 4M shared L2 Cache LGA 775 65W Dual-Core Processor - Retail

i was thinkin of getting this stuff for ram... i'm not an OCer i just want something stable:
Newegg.com - CORSAIR XMS2 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Retail

i'd like to get a cheap vid card and hold out until i can afford a flagship model... any ideas on a cheap card?

everything else below in my sig is being moved to the new rig. anyone have any thoughts, known issues i might run into? should i consider other ram?

Looks good. I think the RAM should be fine.

question about something i just realized...

i've noticed the gigabyte board supports FSB: 1333/1066MHz.

it also says it only supports Memory: DDR2 1066

the processor i got is a 1333 fsb, and my FSB to Memory will be at a fixed ratio? according to them the only ram i can buy is 1066 mhz... so how does that work?

you can buy any ram. and no the fsb is not fixed.

plus a good cheap card would be the 8800gs.
