Default new comp

I'm looking to build a new comp for my mother. I need to know if what i've found is great or if i can find better for less $. 1000$ budget for a non-gaming computer, with screen and printer.

Case : Antec sonata 3
cpu : intel e4500
mobo: asus p5k
ram : mushkin PC2-6400 2gb
HDD: WD se16 500gb
drive: LG H20ns10
Screen: samsung 940BW
printer : HP 2600n
OS: Windows vista home premium 32bits

i already have the video card, my old 7900gs KO
So what do you think? This computer will last at least 5 years.

My System Specs


looks pretty good. If ya want you could try and lower some of the stuff like the mobo to ahttp://www.ncix.com/products/index.php?sku=25369&vpn=GA%2DP35%2DDS3L&manufactur e=Gigabyte and save in a few areas so you can get a bigger lcd screen
