I'm planning to build my first system shortly. Aside from peripherals, soundcard, CD drive and HD, all the components will be new.

My question, as an amateur, is - will all of this stuff work together?

Asus P5B Socket 775 Core2, Dual DDR2, PCI-E, SATA2 Motherboard

Intel Core 2 Duo E6750 2.66Ghz Socket 775 CPU - Retail
http://www.yoyotech....392bde4265bf516

OCZ 2GB (2 x 1024MB) DDR2 PC2-6400 / 800MHz / Vista Upgrade Edition Memory

XFX PV-T80G-GHD9 Geforce 8800GTS XXX Edition, 320MB GDDR3, PCI Express, 580/1800mhz, Dual DVI, TV OUT Graphics Card

And will my current version of XP - which was issued with my current computer and for which I have a serial key- work with a different mobo?

Thanks!

Yes but I suggest a few changes.
One, get a P35 board.
Two, get a higher quality PSU, that one will likely fail and fry your computer.
Three, buy a 8800GT or HD3870, much better cards.
Just to let you know, your case, PSU and GPU are all out of stock :)

The power supply looks pretty cheap and I'd probably switch to a P35 or a 680i motherboard to be safe. All of your other choices seem pretty well-informed.
