ok well the as long as u currently have an ide hardrive, a new one should be compatible, regardless the size, u can even use both, i dont think the cpu is compatible, ur probably gonna need a new mobo, because celeron is horrible, but both the fsb are the same, 478 so ur gonna have to get a second opinion, as for the ram it is compatible, i reccomend buying ur stuff on newegg, because honestly those things are so old that they are so cheap, and ppl on ebay dont know what there doing, get a new mobo for like 80 bucks, make sure its comptible with atleast pentium 4, get a new p4, also maybe u want ddr2 ram, but it would be cheaper to stick with ur old ddr ram.
