At a glance, everything looks OK. It isn't too difficult to know
everything will work together...

RAM looks good; Harddrive OK, but if you have OEM drive only, does it
come with SATA cable? You might want to check into that.

Of course optical drive will work, same with floppy. They always do.

If you like the case, the power supply will be adequate. Especially
considering that I have 2 harddrives, 2 optical, floppy, 10/100
network card, soundcard, dual video cards, an auxilary fan, and a
wireless network card all running off of a 200W power supply. I
suppose modern processors take more power than my lowly PII 233MHz,
but I think most people oversize their power supplies. Although it is
fun to have lots of extra...

I would be happy with your computer, although I would seriously
consider getting a slightly higher processor, if it isn't too much of
a price jump. Maybe you could even get into the 64-bit arena for $50
extra; not that much and it might put off your next computer by a year
or two. Just a thought, and I suppose that it would be a lot of
trouble to reselect motherboard/cpu combo.

Everything looks like it will work fine together, only thing I saw
that I would change is the CPU/MOBO combo. The FSB on your CPU and
MOBO are key for speed. 333MHz is not that fast anymore. Look into a
800MHz FSB combo and see what you can afford. if you go with the
333MHz you will be looking to upgrade too soon.
