    hi i had a dell dimension e521 and i upgraded memory power supply and graphic card on it

    the power supply should be no problem as dell use standerd atx so it should fit fine,

    with the graphic card case of making sure it will fit, in dell pc the graphic cards mount upside down so the cpu cooler can get in the way, try and choose a short card such as a msi cyclone this should help,

    as for the ram check the voltage first and choose ram to match, hope this helps,

    really though as your using 32bit windows there is no real point going bigger then 3gb as you are intending on using a 1gb graphic card windows will not be able to utilise it any way

    hope this helps
