I appreciate the fast response, anyways I can upgrade my motherboard if thats the issue, I was gonna slowly upgrade my computer anyways and I think the first step is probably a new motherboard/ram.

I attached my computer specs from cpuz if you can help me find out if it would be the best option.

best option?

get a new system... its sorta uncanny how similar our systems are.... start from scratch and sell this off (or keep it as a backup)

Like vernong has stated, you need the DDR 400 RAM for that motherboard since it's only compatible with that speed.
