i dont think that motherbard is ddr 400 (pc3200) compatable beacuse is the older via chipset. try and get a board with either nForce2 or VIA KT600 chipset on so that that ram will def work. might cost you abit more but better than it not workin at all.

motherboard details:

alot of people on this site will tell u asus are a quality make i have no experience so i dunno, but i do know msi are very gud and cheap aswel. if ur on a tight budget theres not much of a performance gain to have the dual channel. its about 5% extra maybes less with xp chips, the main difference is for the 800fsb P4s. ive got a msi kt6 delta lsr cost me about 60 GBP and its down to less than 50 now so thats about 90 -100 USD had no problems at all. my DDR400 works great and have got 2600 o/ced.

from ur site i would go with
http://www.ateck.com/viewItem.asp?idProduct=453055827

but try newegg
mobo:
http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...130-445&depa=1

cpu
http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...103-336&depa=1

get from newegg its cheaper plus u will save on shipping maybes buy a faster chip


hope helps

Have you already checked and seen if the AGP voltage is compatible with your graphics card?
