Simply put, No. a 3ghz non core 2 duo cpu is either a Pentium 4 or a Pentium D. They both suck. The ram is probably older so it will be slow and have bad timings, let alone it being cheap because Dell used it.

No problemo.

Newegg.com - BIOSTAR TForce TP45HP LGA 775 Intel P45 ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards

I seem to be recommending this one a lot, but it is a good board. She will oc well and has a good price. You wont find all of the features that the higher end board have but I have seen one do 700mhz fsb.

Newegg.com - Antec Three Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Computer Cases

This case is pretty popular and well built.
