That mobo should do just fine(if you get a working one), but if youre planning on running vista/win7 and gaming in res 1440x900 or higher than i strongly suggest 4gb of ram.

Depending on your definition of budget and the extent of overclocking you want look at the G41/G31 chipsets. Gigabyte has the G41m-ES2L and the G31-ES2L, they are both E5200 compatible and good overclockers, not extreme, but good and stable as goes Gigabytes reputation, I would look at these as well.
