drop the cooler master supply, go for a 500W psu

i would go for 8GB ram because of how cheap it is right now, and i would re use your hard drive, and if you could afford it, maybe go for a 100GB SSD

Definitely go for 8gb. its cheap and 64bit windows seems to run much better with it than 4gb.

Yes move your 1Tb drive over and you probably could resue your optical drive if you wanted to also.

dump that motherbd and get something a bit more current.
