Bump. A few changes:
Mobo - Gigabyte GA-M55plus-S3G
CPU - Athlonx2 3800 AM2
RAM - 1gb (2x512mb) Corsair Value Select (will upgrade to 2gb soon)

All the rest is the same as above. Are they all ok together?
Also the motherboard has onboard graphics (geforce 6100). I heard this was pretty good, as far as onboard graphics go anyway. I was wondering if i'd be able to play Battlefield 2 and Dawn of War with it until I get a preoper video card?

you should manage BF2 ok on the lowest settings. I would wait for the newer graphics cards before shelling out but would probably go for 2Gb straight away rather than waiting otherwise youll never do it and youll be stuck with a gig of extra ram and you want matched pairs maxing slots and odd numbers is to be avoided wherever possible.

I would probably go for a bigger HDD value wise they suck at 80Gb, best value for money is between 160 and 320Gb, maxtors are what i can usually get cheapest but a disk is a disk sata2 and 16mb cache after that get whats cheapest.
