The way I read your list, the M/B comes with a processor so, in that case you don't need the one listed further down.

Definitely get more Ram. A second hard drive would be useful to keep backups on.

Good luck with the build, completed my first one recently, very satisfying, I give it a loving look as it boots up (sad!).

The graphics card I've never heard of and its AGP which is not as common as PCI Express nowadays and due to this I'm not keen on the motherboard, better to get one with PCI Express for the graphics and get a card for that, the processor depending on what you are planning to use the computer for is too slow, for all the difference you'd be better trying to get a 3 ghz CPU or better and the memory is ok as if money is tight at the moment you can always add another 512mb further down the line.
I just feel personally that if you're buying new components you should try to get some of the newer items that are more common such as PCI Express, SATA perhaps and processor prices being what they are for another £10 or £20 you can get a faster processor so saving a few quid here doesn't make that much sense to me.
Have you considered a barebones from Novatech click here

I'd second the suggestion from Totally-braindead to look at Novatech's barebones bundles. The hard work is all done when you get it.
