Hi everyone! I think I posted in the wrong area before so I am moving it here now that I know a little more. First thank you for all of your help so far!
I think I was getting in over my head a little bit. So basically my old computer broke down and well here is what I have left:
---I have the case (my old computer was ATX)
---ALLIED AL-A400ATX power supply
---Hard drives

OK now from your advice here is what I am thinking about:

--Mother board = ASUS A8N5X Socket 939 NVIDIA nForce4 ATX AMD

--Video card = eVGA 256-P2-N386-AX Geforce 6800GS 256MB GDDR3 PCI Express x16

--Power Supply = Thermaltake TR2 W0070 ATX 430W

--RAM = G.SKILL 2GB (2 x 1GB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM DDR 400 (PC 3200) Unbuffered System Memory Model F1-3200PHU2-2GBNS

--Processor = AMD Athlon 64 3700+ San Diego 1GHz FSB Socket 939 Processor Model ADA3700BNBOX

So after all that I have 3 final questions if you guys can help me out again!
1) Do I really need a new power supply? Mine was working fine before but if you think its a good idea, I will buy one.

2) Do I need to buy a fan or heatsink or the paste or those things?

3) What I guess I am wondering is, will this work?? lol, I mean will those parts work with each other?

Thank you guys so much for your help, I am buying these things from that New egg site based pretty much solely on your recommendations so if you think I am making a mistake let me know! I want all of your feedback, you seem like a very nice group of people here so I think I will like being here!
Thanks again! -Ashleymom

ok here goes...

1. I would strongly suggest u buy a new PSU since there is no guarantee that the old one will work for too long.

2. If you buy the boxed processor then it comes with the heat sink and fan so unless u r overclocking it there is no need to buy one. But if u r not buying boxed processor or intend to oc then u need something else. COME back and let us know and we will help u sort that out.

3. Yes it seems like and i am sure all that will work together well.
