Default Any Compatability Issues?

I'm looking to upgrade my current computer with a more powerful Motherboard, CPU, and RAM. Before I buy the parts though I just wanted to know how I can check if the parts will work together. The motherboard and CPU are both Socket 775 designs. The RAM and motherboard are both 240 pinsets. Memory speed for MB and RAM are both 533 Mhz DDR2. Is there anything I'm missing? I want to be **** sure that parts work together before I shell out a few hundred dollars for the parts.

Any suggestions would help a ton.

I hate to bump my own topic but I'd feel alot better if a few more people could confirm whether or not this setup would work. All three peices are going to cost a little under $500 so i want to be sure they'll work before I shell out that kind of cash.
