Below will be the specs of the "core" things that will be in it.

Well, I'm confused.

Firs your motherboard only supports AGP (no PCI-E) yet it seems as if you're buying an onboard PCI-E video card which just doesn't make sense to me.

If you would have read down on that list of specs of that mobo it says it has 1 pci-e x1 and 1 pci-e x16 so the card will fit it.

That sounds like a decent machine but if you plan on oc'ing you might want to pick up an aftermarket psu.
