PC compatibility question (mobo/CPU/Case setup)

  1. Hello all.

    I am putting a new computer together and have all of the parts aside from the Motherboard, CPU and case. Could you please let me know if the following parts all compatible with one another? I know it's not the best setup in the world, but it is for a budget PC and we have limited resources at our disposal, unfortunately...




    And the Ram (already owned) is US Modular Dual Channel 1024MB PC4200 DDR2 533MHz Memory (240 pin) -- is that compatible as well?

    I would really appreciate it if someone could help me here, and I apologize if I am using the wrong forum for this post. I have been searching for days and cannot come up with any definitive answers at this point.

    Thank you in advance.

    Not impressive as you have said but it's your money, your choice... Yes they will all work

    Being completely honest... is it complete junk? You can be brutally honest with me, I do not mind. The computer will be used just for surfing and she also plays something called the Sims 2 once in a great while. Other than that it is just for college work and Internet surfing.

    Is this setup sufficient for those needs?

    I'm an Intel guy, but I do understand budget constraints... I don't know if the on-board video will run Sims 2 properly, but you can address the addition of a PCI-e video card if needed, later...

    Yes, once again... it will work
