Default Are these compatible & what case?

This probably seems like a dumb question, but I just wanted to make sure before I bought it. Can someone comfirm that all these are compatible with the motherboard? Another problem I'm having is the case. There are a lot of cases out there and I hear some are quite bad. How do I know which one works for me? I dont' want to find out the motherboard doesn't fit in it after I buy it -_- Any help or criticism on the stuff I've chosen would be appreciated.

*edited: added my modified choices in 2nd post ^_^ The ones below are the same, so I left them.

M-AUDIO US99120 Sound Card

Kingston ValueRAM 1GB (2 x 512MB)


Oh and one last question. Will my old floppy disk drive work on the new computer? I can't seem to find what brand it is (in the device manager), but it's probably about 5 years old. I'm currently using it now on my p3 600mhz winXP. I'm guessing it's good enough to work? Thanks again ^_^

Here's a nice case

Also, you should switch your power supply to Thermaltake 420w ($37)
(save a lot of money)

I would suggest not to get a Samsung Hard drive: Get
Western Digital

You also need a Graphics card

It'll work, but why a 754? A 939 at least can use dual channel RAM, and the 754s are being pushed back into Sempron status.

That case you recommended turtile, looks very good! I'm going to get that one ^_^ Thanks!

I guess the 939 is better trotter? I made a couple changes based on you & turtile's advice.

ASUS A8V DELUXE ATX AMD Motherboard (socket 939)

AMD Athlon 64 3000+ CPU (socket 939)

Seagate Barracuda 120GB HD

THERMALTAKE 420W Power Supply

As far as the video card goes, I guess this one will do. I'm not looking for those 300 dollar ones atm. Perhaps another day.

Your Mobo and Video Card arent compatable. The Mobo is AGP and Vid is PCI-E. Choose one and make sure they match.
