Hey gang. I have an odd collection of parts in a box, looking to put together a middling box to help a friend feed his Minecraft addiction.

Here's what I have:

2x Samsung 1gb m378t2953cz3-cd5 memory http://www.amazon.com/PC2-4200-533Mhz-DDR2-Samsung-M378T2953CZ3-CD5/dp/B004BIWEVU
2x Nanya 512s (prolly crap) http://www.memoryten.com/pc/012518/DDR2-240p-PC2-5300-512MB/
1x Dell video card (probably crap and not keen to use this) http://www.ebay.com/itm/DELL-0KH285-DVI-VGA-S-VIDEO-VIDEO-CARD-102A6280400-/220837844222

Things I'm looking at: This Biostar/Sempron combo

I'm fairly sure this board can run faster memory, but jost looking for confirmation that this board will run the Samsungs I have.

Also, what would you recommend for a graphics card? Single monitor will suffice.

I have optical drives and hard drives coming out of my ears, but the other thing I'll need is a Windows OS. What's the cheapest you can get away with these days for system building?

im not sure about the ram.
for the gpu a HIS H667F1GD Radeon HD 6670 1GB $97 at newegg
the cheapest windows os is windows 7 for $100 at newegg but you could find a hard drive with xp on ebay ive seen some for about $60 another alternative is Linux its free but its complicated and you cant run all windows apps.
