My System Specs

Default Upgrade to Parents PC

Hey Guys, my parents recently asked me to help them update their computer. The computer is on the older side and is running short on it's life span. At the moment it is running a.... wait for it.... Intel Pentium 4 519K single core processor at 3.06 gigahertz. The motherboard in the computer is an Intel D915GLVG. I was wondering what i should do. Right now i was looking at this option:
Intel Pentium Dual core E5300
Asus P5G41C-M
Silverstone Strider Essential 500w PSU
??? Ram(supports DDR2&3)
??? Video Card
Overall right now on ncix with PM is 192.28
What type of ram should i use and how much of it should i use, also I have no idea on what video card to put into it. It is mostly used to watch HD videos and to play basic games, such as sims 3 and other family friendly titles. I have everything else needed for the build. Thanks in advance for the help.
