Your processor and your RAM are a little weak...

I would upgrade the processor to a Core2DUO offering and bump the RAM to at least 2GB

I agree, I'd upgrade the processor and more importantly, the RAM.

I took your advice and upgrade the processor it cost me an extra 60, the price is what newegg says it the grand total but that has changed since i changed the processor.. Also this is not a complete build YET the following month, I will be getting a second dvd burner and another 1GB of ram, plus a media card reader (internal) a logitech game controller, a second hard drive for internal which will be 500 GB, a linksys wireless card (will use gigabyte ethernet, yes my router does support it lol) also getting a 8GB usb stick from SanDisk and a 26" flat panel LCD tv w/ HDMI which I will be wall mounting

That was quite an upgrade...if you can afford it I would even say to just go up to the E8500...that processor has recieved numerous rewards and is a great performer in light of quard cores and the i7 series
