Default My first built pc

Hello i am new to these boards and am finding alot of useful info on them. Thanks everyone. I am 15 and building my first pc. This is how it looks:

MOTHERBOARD-http://www.newegg.com/app/viewProdu...ufactory=BROWSE
CPU- http://www.newegg.com/app/viewProdu...ufactory=BROWSE
HARD DRIVE- http://www.newegg.com/app/viewProdu...ufactory=BROWSE
MEMORY- http://www.newegg.com/app/viewProdu...ufactory=BROWSE
VIDEO CARD- http://www.newegg.com/app/viewProdu...ufactory=BROWSE
CD/DVD- http://www.newegg.com/app/viewProdu...ufactory=BROWSE
CASE- http://www.newegg.com/app/viewProdu...ufactory=BROWSE

How will this compare to my current computer a dell 2400 p4 2.2 ghz, 256ddr, 40gb 7200rpm and basic everything else? I am on a budget. It will be a everyday computer and a gaming but not extreme gaming. Games such as swat 4, battlefield:1942, call of duty, gta, ect. Thanks for all of your responses!

Try posting what each part is. Not the whole description but manufacturer and model plus needed extras (MB, GHz, Watts, stuff like that).

Works a lot better for evaluation purposes than links.

Swat 4 will be pretty demanding. This computer is definitly a lot more powerful than the one u currently own. However, I might up the memory to one gig and see if you can shoot for a GeForce 6600 GT. if you cant, not the end of the world, but it would be an immense improvment.

You want a socket 939, not a 754.

you're going to need more than that

the most socket efficient way is to upgrade from 9600pro to this:

the 9600 pro won't cut it (my friend has a 5700ultra, similar to a 9600xt and he barely gets by in hl2 and cs:s)
