everything looks ok, with the possible exception of the ram. best to get a name brand, dual channel kit. this assures the ram will work together properly for max FSB speed. check the recomended ram on the mobo website, any of that will work great.

It should work but its going to slow that rig down alot (its only going to be 133 on the rated memory speed aka ddr-266)

You want ddr-400 :tazz:


Its cheap but its good stuff http://www.newegg.co...N82E16820145440
