Your mouse and keyboard will work perfectly. Your monitor will be fine if it has a DVI connection, otherwise you'll need to buy a VGA adapter.

Like JohnnyBoy said, the keyboard and mouse should be fine, unless they are ADB.

The monitor could be a problem if it's and ADC type connection. You would have to get an adapter if it is.
