Hey guys I am attempting my first computer build which is actually more of an upgrade, I recently recieved an older pc and want to upgrade it a bit for gaming, I just want to be sure that everything I want to buy is compatable. The computer is a eMachines t3085.
I am considering purchasing:
Motherboard and cpu package

Graphics card
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=7229011&CatId=3670
RAM
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=6753736&CatId=10
If anyone with any computer knowledge can help me out it would be greatly appreciated and also feel free to make suggestions on other things i should add but I am on a very tight budget so keep that in mind, thanks!

If it just casual gaming then those parts should do but can you find out how many wattage the psu is?

The card should have no problem powering up. I would assume that your burner and hard drive are both IDE.

I believe that they are. Do you think this would be able to run games like battlefield and combat arms fine? Or should I go with a better graphics card?

Combat Arms should run without a problem but which battlefield are you talking about?
