Following are the potential components to the gaming PC:

There it is. I have a few questions that I would appreciate having answered about the build:
1) Will the 420 Watt power supply be enough to power it?
2) Will the old hard drive work with the newer SATA on the motherboard?
3) Will the slower memory work with the higher standard motherboard?
4) Is upgrading the 8800 GS to a GT worth an extra 50, and a GTX an extra 100?
5) Are there any parts I can upgrade without greatly increasing the cost?
6) Did I miss anything?
7) Most importantly, will it work?
P.S.: I already have a monitor, keyboard, mouse, and sound system.
