Taking on my first pc build for my father in law. The primary use will be for email, light Internet browsing, and some games - Hoyle card games, Rolercoaster Tycoon, etc. Nothing too taxing. I've got a preliminary build and would appreciate any comments and critiques.

~ $600 USD, without O/S & videocard. K/b, mouse and monitor will most likely be reused from current system.
My main concern is keeping the cost down, putting together a stable system, and one that will hopfully be Vista upgradable. I'm pretty sure that all the components above are compatible with one another, but would like some input on any upgrades which those with pc building experience, can reccommend. Much thanks in advance for your help...
