You probably won't even want to use the network card or sound card, the integrated solution would be better then an old SoundBlaster can pull off, and the integrated ethernet is 10/100/1000 (Gigabit Ethernet) the PCI-E video card will go into one of the long Brown slots so no worries there.

You can use the Ram you currently have, but it will run at a slower speed the the motherboard is capable of, you can upgrade that later though.

the PCI-E card plugs into the long slot
Soundcard goes into the white
Network adapter becomes a x-mas tree decoration, it's unnessacary if you have gigabit (or even 10/100)

Get the DFI board and a 3000+ since it will be better

Oh I see...
Yeah well I was thinking of upgrading the memory first, would I notice a difference between the 2x256mb pc 2700 and the KINGSTON KVR400X64C3A - 512 / 512MB PC3200 DDR?
