It is probably a good idea to upgrade your motherboard to one that incorporates PCI Experss technology. AGP 8x is quickly beccoming obsolete in favor of the faster PCI Express x16 slot. A new p4 board shouldn't cost more than $140. Unfortunatly, I do not think Intel manufactures a PCI Express board for the Northwood P4 processors, which would require you to purchase a new processor as well. Furthermore, you would probably have to buy DDR2 memory as well, as DDR and DDR2 are not cross compatable. (Intel motherboards now use DDR2 RAM)
