Default Which computer to buy?

I am looking to buy a computer for the upcoming game EQ II. I have a budget of about 600-775$
I am looking for...
Intel *pentium or celeron, doesnt matter* - 2+ghz
512+DDR SDRAM
128MB+ Video Card

And the basic features....a monitor has to be included if its 775$..
Any ideas where I can get a good computer? I thought about upgrading an emachine, but I am not too sure? What about these three things together? Work well?

BASE COMPUTER
Emachine T2642 - LINK TO ITEM -http://www.emachines.com/products/products.html?prod=eMachines_T2642

EXTRA RAM
Tigerdirect.com - Premium 512MB PC2100 DDR 266MHz Memory
LINK TO ITEM -http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=506209&Sku=TC2-DDR-512&CatId=839

VIDEO CARD
XFX GeForce FX 5200 256MB DDR AGP8X with TV & DVI Video Card
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...&Sku=P450-8503

MONITOR - bestbuy 80$ free shipping (mail in rebate makes it 80)

Thanks for any help.
