Mobo, CPU, memory on cheap

  1. Hi all.
    Could you give me some suggestions on this setup or another?

    This is what I had in mind:
    ASUS A7N8X-VM400 mobo, AMD 2500+ CPU, 1 stick 512mb 333 memory.
    All the rest I will use an old case, ps, hd, dvd

    I want to spend around 250 for everything.
    Thinking of buying from a place like Newegg, PcParts or Mwave?

    Do you think this will be too much for a first time mobo installer to setup?
    Done all the other but not a mobo before.

    Also is this on board video decent, I heard it was? Im not a gamer or overclocker, but I do enjoy some simple video games

    I hope this is enough info to get some suggestions.

    Thats a good set up but the onboard video will only be good for older games. You shoud get PC3200 RAM (400mhz). Most XP 2500's will run at 400 which turns it into an XP 3200.
