not worth it if it doesnt include PCI x16...IMHO....do what lamb said with his setup and pick up that ATX case and PSU for an extra 25...

that would be better...I would think atleast

mATX, 1 PCI-e, 2 PCI, 1 AGP 4x/8x, DDR400 Ram Slots, LGA 775 CPU socket...

look its what you need its no x16 but its got PCI-e which still expands your options...i think it works but I forget the rest of the specs...just looking out for your upgradabliltiy (if thats a word) later

EDIT: you can get either ram...it supports DDR2, DDR, you have 2 of each slots
