    Gambia, The
    you won't need that sound card because most motherboards have sound cards onboard already
    also this processor will run with 800 Mhz DDR2 or 1066 Mhz DDR3 RAM if I'm not mistaken...so this 533Mhz RAM is slow and will slow down your PC

    Yeah get some good 800MHz/PC2-6400 DDR2 make sure it is low latency at least CL4 and a good name like OCZ or Corsair. You do not need a sound card most MB have Realtek on board HD sound which is very good. So use the cash you save from that to get better RAM. Like this one £26.10> http://www.ebuyer.com/product/116755
