You have all the peripherals and the Operating System, which is good.
All you have on internal components however, is a hard drive, so we need to work on that. Here are the things you need to custom build a computer. I would like to give your prices but everything is so different depending on brands and clock speeds, features, etc.
1. Case (obviosuly to hold the hardware)
2. PSU (power supply unit to provide power to your hardware)
3. Motherboard (the body of the computer that will hold and route all other hardware.
4. RAM (random access memory, I recommend 1GB AT LEAST for vista)
5. GPU (graphics card so you can see the things going on in your computer(may not be needed if the motherboard has integrated graphics))
6. Processor (your computer's brain, this is needed to handle all information that you manipulate on the computer)
7. Cooling (your PSU will come with a fan but that is sometimes not enough. If the case does not come with fans, then i suggest you get some or even think about water cooling)
8. CD/DVD drive (needed for installing windows)
Hope I helped

Indeed $350 is not alot, especially when your thinking of booting vista in. It really is a bad time to shop, as ram prices just increase drastically a few weeks back.
- A c2d proc by intel or an Athlon x2 by AMD
- Motherboard with onboard graphics
*note - motherboards are dependant on the processor you buy, due to the socket difference, i would recommend AMD with a 780g motherboard with onboard graphics.
- A good psu probably a 400w range
- at least 2GB of ram, higher is better.
- A good mid tower casing.
that should be all.

Be careful what parts you buy. You need to make sure the motherboard type will fit into the computer case you get, the RAM type fits the motherboard, same with the power supply and such. Go to google and do your research on what you need in a computer and what kind of parts are compatible and what you are looking for BEFORE you go to the fair, or you will be wasting your money.

You need to do a little bit of research yourself here.
What type of motherboard do you want, how big a hard drive. do you or will you need a graphics card. How much Ram and what size CPU.
These are just some of the things you need to know so you buy what you need not what somebody else is only too willing ti sell to you.
