building a computer is like playing with lego, except nothing will fit in the wrong place and the front panel cables will most likely be marked with a guide were to put them. logo might be a bit more complicated actually.

hmm maybe theres ide cables that can go in upside down but think thats only a problem with pre-1995 computers we always seem to get in at work.

well this is 815 or 785 after rebate, I bet you could find a local computer shop to build it for $50 or so. It would quadtruple your 3dmark scores, and give much better overall performance.

before buying anything check the motherboards supported memory.

you will get better performance this route and you computer would last longer.
