I'm surprised nobody has spotted this:
you are getting a socket 478 CPU and a socket 775 motherboard.
they won't work together.

I also recommend you get 2 x 512MB sticks of RAM:

lol ya they're both socket 775... i didn't notice cuz i got the impression that this comp is already working.

well since you got the cpu like 2yrs ago, and the rest like a year ago, its fine. not such a bad deal. i thought you paid for this stuff like now.

you should "dream ahhhh " about girls.
you should merely ponder about computer parts.
