On every motherboard there's a bank of pins, and the case will come with headers. Just look in the motherboard manual where each header is meant to go, and plug it in. The power and LED ones are the trickiest, as their tiny and are really close together. USB is much easier as its just one big bank of pins per header

It depends on a couple of things.

If the Intel processor was a Pentium 4, then yes, definitely though

The video card is the main thing you need to worry about for good gaming performance though.

Avoid the 7300GS like the plague - its got something called TurboCache, which means it uses your RAM as its own RAM; slowing your PC down, and its not even a decent card anyway.

Again, that 6200 has TurboCache.

Depending on the resolutions, I think the 6200 without the Turbocache might be able to play BF2 on medium settings.

But check out reviews online.

A 6600GT for 90 new:
