with the MSI motherboard u chose, u dont have any pci-e slots, find the AGP version of the card, and ur fine.

PCI-e is useless with the setup u have, it wont benefit anything from it, as it cant use its full capacity yet.

edit:mobo information: http://www.newegg.com/app/viewProduc...130-468&depa=1

office is not part of windows xp home or pro edition, u must buy it separately.

if the case u buy has sufficient fans, then u dont need to get any others, unless ur heatsink doesnt come with a fan.

yes u do, windows is expensive, but there are alternatives, such as open office, developped by sun micro systems, it is very much like MS office, but free.
