LGA 775 is a dead socket these days and has been replaced by LGA1156 & LGA1366. For your budget I would look elsewhere than the old socket.

Do you have a list of other parts you have or are likely to buy ?

Sorry but both parts are very dated for today's stand ards. How about you tell us your budget again and your monitor resolution. Because honestly for $450 you'll get a very low end of a "gaming computer."

You'd be better off getting an AMD build. Try getting a AM2+ build. That's the only build that supports DDR2
