it should all work but i would suggest getting windows 7 over XP, it'll last you longer. i think that AM3 processors are compatible with the AM2+ socket but im not too sure about that

your computer should focus mainly on the Graphics Card (which you are lacking of) for gaming.

I suggest you build your budget around the graphics card. If you have a previous computer, you can use the cd key from that windows version to save you some cash.

You don't need a 550 watt for that build, go cheaper to a 450
For your budget that case is over, but idk where you can get a cheaper one.
You still want a solid motherboard/cpu if you can afford it.

If you really can't do any of that, then i suggest wait a little longer and save up some more cash for a better build
