At a quick glance i think it should all run.

One thing im curious about is that you are getting a micro-atx board, but an atx case. The advantage to at micro-atx board is its smaller, but your still getting a larger case. Why not just get an atx board? then you could get one with better features, such as pci-e!?

How much have u got to spend??

If its pure gaming, go with amd. maybe an AMD 3500+ or if u have the money AMD X2 3800+ and get a good graphics card. 7800 gt or gtx will drop in price when the 7900 series comes out in a week or so!!!

yes a 2000mhz amd would be better than a 3GHz P4, the reason is because amd cpus do more per clock than an intel which makes them perfect for gaming, u should have a look at ASUS amd motherboards and some amd cpus, i recommend the 3500+ but if u dont have the money go for the 3200+, as for graphics card make sure u get a motherboard with a pci-e slot and an evga 6800gs, i noticed u picked an agp before, agp is outdated and pci-e is now the way to go, so check all that out and tell us what u pick.
