Yes, the card will fit.

Yes, the PSU will run the card and fit.

The RAM link is bad, but you comp uses 400/300 MHz DDR. As long as it isn't DDR2 and has 184 pins, it will work.

Your CPU is actually a socket 939. I'm surprised.

make sure if it currently has onboard video that you first enable the card and disable the onboard if video if onboard video is present
