You will need [ with approximate prices]

2 x2 gig of 1333 MHz DDR3 running at 1.5 volt $24

seagate or Hitachi 500 gig hard drive $85

dvd drive $17

windows 7 64 bit oem $99

No need for a graphics card . The processor graphics are good enough for your needs

The case looks like it has a 3.5 inch front bay too so a card reader might be useful
