    I have no idea why do people still invest money in LGA775 socket, let alone DDR2 RAMs.

    Because while it's utterly obsolete as far as Intel is concerned, it's no wimp as far as gaming goes. Sure, it's on the low end, but it's adequate.
    That said however, you'd be better off with a new H61 chipset board and a low end socket 1155 chip, as even the cheap pentium G620 equals or beats an overclocked E5200, and having that socket allows upgrades to some really nice quad core i3/i5 or even i7 chips.
    I'd dump the 4870, and go for the best 5/6/7xxx series card you can, the newer cards as so much better. DDR2 is no real problem, it's not significantly slower than DDR3, the only real problem with it is the fact it won't work if you upgrade.

    Pentium G620 would be WAAAAYYYYYY faster than an E5200. It would probably even beat a number of Core 2 duo CPUs. IMO, s775 should not be used in new PCs nowadays given how affordable new Core i_ systems are.
    No wonder it doesn't work! You installed the coils backwards

    Problem is, it's not a viable option when price is concerned. DDR3 RAMs cost far less, and new Celeron G550 isn't much more expensive than the used E5200.

    Anandtech BENCH (scroll down) E5200 vs G620
    Though I did see some very low prices on refurbished E5200 HP systems

    Rosewill does some excellent power supplies and very good cases, I doubt the combo you have chosen is a good one

    hd 4870 ~HD 7750, HD 5770/6770, HD 5830. GTX260, GTX 550 Ti, GTX 650.
    Driver support is ending for older AMD Cards 4xxx, 5xxx

    I would definitely go with SB or IVY bridge; h61 boards are pretty cheap. If you live in a location with micro-center they have fantastic deals on SB bundles (2500k is approx $70 more than the e5200) but more than 2x faster (3x in many cases) in addition to being quad core and easy to overclock if you have the need. In addition the bundle price will save you anther $25 or $50 on the mother board (depending on your selection). The big advantage of ivy bridge over sand bridge (processor) is if you skip the gpu then hd400 >>> hd3000 (well 2x) but approx 1/3 of an atx4870 (so your gpu while dated is still quite a bit faster than built in gpu).

    Anyways microcenter has the best deal by far on sb/ivy bridge bundles; BUT most of these deals are instore only and their prices on other components are generally not that great. The E5200 is pretty sad but i guess it depends on what sort of games you play. I tend to like turn base strategy and some of them can tax the cpu esp when on a large map; also for non-gameing I do a fair amoutn of developement work and would be hard press to use somethign much slower than a 2500k for large compiles (my work box is a Q9550 which I do not recommend due to price/perf; but it is quite speedy).

    Oh yea and SB tends to use a lot less power than the older processors.
