It should work, though make sure the wireless NIC has drivers for Kubuntu. I assume this is not a performance build, the Phenom II X2 550 would offer a performance increase over the Athon II.

I saw a review which said it works flawlessly in Kubuntu 6.10 and seeing as this is 3 years later, I'm really not worried about the wireless adapter.

UPDATE:
I noticed the memory says sli-ready. I didn't think the memory has anything to do with SLI.

I have used the Rosewill R220-P-BK case for a couple of builds.
Fairly decent for a inexpensive case.
the ones I used came with a 140mm rear fan instead of a 120mm.

The front headphone/mic connector will seem too short to reach the connector ,which is on the back of most motherboards,
The wires are hooked by the floppy drive opening on the inside.
Carefully unhook the wires & it will reach the connector with no problem.

The nice thing is that the front USB & front headphone/mic connectors are single connector instead of individual wires which makes connecting them simple.

They just use the SLI-Ready slogan for marketing reasons. It's like games that have the Nvidia ad and say something along the lines of "Nvidia, the way it's meant to be played". It doesn't actually mean the games going to run better on a Nvidia card.
