Any new psu work. SATA is only optional.

And if that P4 processor is socket 775 than yes you have a working package.

Ps. Putting it together yourself?

Ok thanks for that, another question if you could be so kind to answer :)

The spec requirements for the graphics card says it needs an adjacent pci slot? what does that mean?

Yuor cpu and MoBo have to be the same socket. So if you plan on using you 478, you better get a different board.

Also, if you get a 775, and want to have a aftermarket heatsink, instal it now because if you want to do it later, you will have to remove the MoBo from your case.
