I recently got a free Dimension 3000 with 1GB of RAM, a Celeron D 320 (2.4) and I added a FX5200 card I had lying around. It runs very well for a free machine and I wanted to upgrade it further. I've read about the machine and know it's old but i'm going to keep it around as a fail-safe/ back up.

My question is can and should I make the upgrades listed below.

I know this ram would work well. Sorta expensive for being pc3200 :/  I will check on ebay for some cheap 3200.

Is this compatible with the PC? It's PCI so I assume it would. Also would the PSU be able to handle all 3 upgrades???

I know for the price of these it's not worth the upgrades BUT I consider it because I found this
