    It looks okay, but did you leave room to buy an os, keyboard, monitor?

    Where is your HDD?

    If you have a $500 dollar budget I bet there are some people who would put something together for you.

    Make sure your old HDD is SATA and not IDE. Your new MoBo does not support IDE devices ie. HDD, DVD-R, etc...

    Considering your $500 budget, this system looks pretty good.

    The only thing, like buckshot said --
