For your CPU I would recommend this instead

Intel Core2 Duo E7500 Wolfdale 2.93GHz 3MB L2 Cache LGA 775 65W Dual-Core Processor BX80571E7500

Instead, get this for your power supply.
Antec Basiq BP350 350W ATX12V v2.01 Power Supply

G.SKILL 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 533 (PC2 4200) System Memory Model F2-4200PHU2-2GBLA

Everything else looks good.
