Question a good setup?

Ive decided that instead of paying for another AGP card im going to go with a pci-e card, that means I have to get a pci-e mobo aswell.

hows this look:

You need a Socket 939 CPU and you don't need ddr400, but you need ddr, which you have.

Yeah I agree with pzero; also the motherboard is nice but if you're not going to overclock, the MSI K8N Neo4-F is a great board for cheaper, and if you are going to overclock look for the DFI Lanparty UT Motherboard

ok, will do. Two questions though... will my 480 W power supply support the pci-e card and mobo? And do you think that once I buy the video card, motherboard, and cpu all listed above that I will be able to play The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion when it comes out in february? (more of an opinion than a question )

With the 6800GS? Yeah. Maybe not on highest settings with high AA/AF
but will play reasonably well I'm guessing.
And the powersupply question sort of depends on the powersupply, what is the name of it?

Specs of the PSU would be nice
