450 for the system. I can't find the power for the just the card but they are saying System Power not video card power.

One thing on your 520 PS is you might want to make sure that it has all of the power connections that the new MB needs. That MB needs a 24 pin plug and a 4 pin plug for power for the cooling fan for the CPU (if you look at the zoomed in picture of the MB in the lower left of the overhead view you can see it. Also the video card needs a 6 pin plug for power but they normally come with an adapter that you can use a power connector for a hard drive.

Those should work good together, the memory will be a bit over rated for the mother board support but, you will be able to use the memory possibly in another upgrade later. The video card will require the 6 pin power supply cord. Make sure you get a power supply that will accept this additon. I doubt your current power supply will supply enough power to utilize this card capabilities without the 6 pin connection. Also, you may need a bit bigger power supply than the 450 watt. The video card specification will usually say what the minimum 12v amps which are required. Yes, that is total system wattage. Usually a bit bigger supply is needed if prolonged demanding card usage is required.

Sorry Rob, must have been typing as you were hitting the reply button. Thanks

Other than the possible power supply problems, does it look like all those parts will work well together? Has anything significant changed with disk drive connections? I have a couple of drives I would like to reuse.

edit: thanks Mike. I took a little too long typing my response. I guess I'll look for a power supply.

What kind of drives do you have? That board supports to channels of IDE. If you have SATA you will be alright to. Buss speed will slow with older ata 66/100/133 speeds though. All the listed bench marks are made with the newest technologies possible as of the time they send out the components.

I looked at the picture, and I think I see what you're talking about on the lower left. It looks like a 4 pin connector? I guess you have to remove the little black cover to get the full 6 pin connector? My current power supply has a 24 pin connector and another 4 pin connector that both go to the motherboard. Is that a definite no go?

Mike, why do you say the memory is overrated for the motherboard? This is what the motherboard says it will support: DDR3 2000(O.C.)//1600/1333/1066 (unless I'm missing something, which is possible).

Thought I edited that before I posted (edited now) it is a 4 pin plug on the MB. Unless your gaming heavily 1066 or 1333 is fine for the memory speed.

I have no idea what the disk drives are. They use the ribbon cables, if that means anything. The hard drive is SATA.

I've got that AMD Phenom, works great, for my app (Civ 5) but the game unfortunately doesnt utilize all 4 cores, for mutlitasking I havent ran into a glitch yet. Seems like a good value for the price. If your planning on any games at all, maybe you should invest a little more in the graphics card, just because those seem to be the things that you always wish you had upgraded the most.

Josh, I was looking at the specifications and did not directly see the 1600fsb listed for the Mother Board. Assumed it would be an overclocked speed of up to 2000fsb but yet attainable. As Rob says, no worries.

Here is what I read off the spec. page.

MemoryNumber of Memory Slots 4240pin Memory Standard DDR3 2000(O.C.)/1333/1066 Maximum Memory Supported 16GB Channel Supported Dual Channel

You're good with SATA
