Default Help with building new computer :]

Ok first of all I would like to upgrade my computer, and basically its video card soon or later this year to GeForce 8800 GTS 320MB/640 havent decided yet. But I have an AGP motherboard and graphics card.
1. What would I need to do to upgrade it to be compatable to the 8800.
2. What kind of processor will I need if I need one.
3.The ram on my current computer is it transmitable to a new motherboard?
4. Basically please tell me what I need.

I think my current specs are:

AMD Sempron 3100+
1gb ram
1.8Ghz

I'm new to this so please be nice. :]




Motherboard; does this one work with the 8800, if not pleas recconmend another one around the price range and quality :]

u no what i'll help u now lots of free time, anyways since i got to do some hw due next period i'll list some parts and u go on newegg and find some good deals:

well since 8800 gtx requires a 2.0 ghz processsor or better thats a good place to start:

Intel Core 2 Duo e4300(if u can overlock) or the e6300, if ur an AMD fan go with the opteron, fx(these are real expensive), or X2 (note that my mobo sugestions won't work for amd)

min is 1 gb for that thing:
2 gb corsair or kingston ddr-800 RAM

Mobo: anyone will do as long as it has space
Biostar T-force 965pt or Gigabyte ds3(i use the DS3)
(note that my mobo sugestions won't work for amd)

PSU: some1 else help me here

case: ur preference
