no you cant install a chipset, good news however is that you would only need to change the motherboard. which is not a big deal seeing as the mother board you would be buying right now is only about 150.

so there are fans that do not create air flow? let me know where to buy those fans...
directX10, the point is that directx is a technology which video cards use, and the technology gets updated once in a WHILE, we are at one of those moments, directx9 (the version that all of the video cards have right now) will be replaced slowly but surely by directx10.
directx10 cards cant be bought right now, because they dont exist!
this is why it is recommended to people who want to build computers right now to not spend money on a good video card right now, get a decent cheap one, wait until the directX10 cards are released (whenever that may be) and THEN spend the money on a good video card.
YOU are especially lucky because the 7600gt card suits your budget and the situation which is at hand. even if you werent bothered about games, and hence directx9 or directx entirely, id still recommend the 7600gt card to you, it is a lot of performance for the price.
id still get the ocz powerstream 500watts psu,
you dont want to save money on a component like ocz, this is just my opinion, but i would never trust anything except for an ocz, antec, enermax, or pc power and cooloing.
