    How much do you have to spend?
    Definitely try and talk to @Alen
    also this build is pretty old so make some upgrades to it and you'd be sweet

    For that you can make a great PC
    I'm not that good with them myself though
    I'll make sure Alen see this though he would have the best advice for you.

    Thanks
    CPU: get the 955, it's good enough and far cheaper
    RAM: if you're getting 1333MHz at least make it better than CL9 or go for higher frequencies (you can probs get cheap 1600MHz / CL8 ram)
    HDD: absolutely stay away from Barracuda drives, get a Spinpoint F3 instead.
    GPU: I would go with the 2GB version but meh, if you want the 1GB it's still worth buying
