Yep, it should all work. Don't forget that fan and heatsink i linked above, that is crucial.

Did you already order the parts? The motherboard only supports up to 333 MHz on the FSB, so you can't really ever upgrade to an Athlon XP 3200+ if you wanted to. Plus, that's expensive for a motherboard that doesn't go up to 400 FSB. I got mine for at least 30 bucks cheaper. Also, for the heatsink and fan, I'd recommend the Coolermaster Aero 7 or Aero 7 Lite. I think it would work better.

So you won't be playing any games at all, literally none? Just purely for downloading and internet surfing and whatever else?

::Edit:: What parts will you be using that you already have and what do you need to buy new?

lol man. Like my PM said. Go with the 35w 2400+ XP-M like lazerman also suggested, or if you're really that unsure about overclocking then go with the 2400+ you originally wanted. I don't know why lazerman is always referring heatsinks when he more importantly needs a good motherboard but I suggest you get the NF7-S2G board. The ABit boards make it easier for you to overclock, plus with all us here you should have no problem. That NF7-S2G board has 400FSB but doesn't have that onboard graphics, but it would be a better purchase in the long run to get the NF7-S2G. Yes you will be able to move over your Power Supply assuming it's an ATX Form Factor PSU.

Dude, if you're just going to be net surfing and downloading, there's no reason to overclock your CPU. I don't know why everyone suggests it, but it's not something you have to deal with.
