And what's virtualization?
Thanks for the help guys.
Having the correct socket means it will fit, but not that it will necessarily work, it needs to have a chipset with the architecture you want. LGA775 saw Netburst, Core, and Penryn, and only some of the motherboards are compatible with all of them, there are others (particularly in prebuilt computers or cheap custom-built ones) that only support Netburst or Netburst and Core.
3GB is going to be balanced enough for your system, I'd leave it.
With a PSU power matters little, what does is rated current and quality. I'm not familiar with the GTX460 and its power-hunger, but if it's a cheaper brand or has a weak 12V rail I'd be wary of running a GTX460. Again this is just a pointer, you'll have to research it to get a more detailed answer.
Virtualisation is the capability to run two operating systems at once in the form of a virtual machine. Few people ever use the feature so Intel removes it to cut costs on their budget units.

My fault, I didn't recall correctly...
