Default Need some important advice before buying these 2 items

Does this Mobo have onboard video ? also will it support a 1.8ghz celeron processor ? I just bought a brand new processor this morning as for my old 1.8ghz celeron it won't function or post right on any 478 motherboard.

My last question what do you think of this case ?

I like it, but I am looking for a normal black or silver 2 bay or 3 bay atx case with in the same price range. http://www.geeks.com/details.asp?invtid=KG-201-GRY

Yes the mobo has onboard video, It says it has a VGA port in the back :classic:

It's plain, VERY CHEAP. If it just collapses on you, then dont be shocked. The metal is probably very flimsy and there will be many sharp edges. So it's up to you

A 1.8GHz Celeron has a 400Mhz FSB. It'll work.

Thanks alot world industries for the help. when I get the parts this weekend I'll let you know when it boots up and post something on the monitor..... if it does that, then I can recycle my old 433mhz celeron processor and be able to do alot more then I could with my old gateway. probably in october I'll put in p4HT processor when I have the money again.
