Right now I have an Asus A7N66-VM mobo w/ AMD Athlon XP 1700+ ~1.46GHz and using 1GB Kingston DDR...not sure how much you may need but if you need more of the specs just let me know.
anyways, I need to know if i can replace the motherboard and processor alone. and if so, i was thinking of upgrading to around 2.5GHz and wondering if that is even worth it or should i go farther? i was wanting to get into dual core and something that can be overclocked easily. i had in mind in the beginning to stay with the Asus and AMD but lately have figured anything should be a possibility unless otherwise posted by a more wise poster lol
just ideas that i had that may not work at all...

-MACH SPEED MSNV-939 Socket 939 NVIDIA nForce4 ATX AMD Motherboard
-AMD Athlon 64 X2 4800+ Brisbane 2.5GHz Socket AM2 Processor Model ADO4800DDBOX
-AMD Athlon 64 X2 4400+ Brisbane 2.3GHz Socket AM2 Processor Model ADO4400DDBOX
i got those from newegg by the way and didn't explore intel much
any feedback is greatly appreciated, thanx in advance!
