Default overhaulin

I think it is time for a major upgrade for my desktop. I have had it for 6 years and whenever anything went bad I tried replacing it with something that i can expand on. The system in my signature is the old build. I have since upgraded to a 500w powersupply and 1GB of ram.

here is the MB and chip I want to go to
Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, LED LCD TV, Digital Cameras and more!

and this for the RAM
Micro Center - OCZ Technology 4GB DDR3-1600 (PC-12800) Gold Low Voltage CL8 Memory Kit (Two 2GB Memory Modules) OCZ3G1600LV4GK

My powersupply,case,HDs and DVD drives should all work with the new upgraded parts correct? What else might I need to upgrade?

My set up built april 2004
nvida 5600FX 256MB 8X graphic card W/ tv out
NEC-2500a & NEC-3500a dvd burner
soyo dragon II mother board
P4 2.4ghz HT 800mhz fsb
120GB maxtor HD & 500gb sata hd
512mb ram pc3200 400mhz made by ultra
