yeah, u dont want that motherboard or CPU

the 4200+ has low Cache, either get the 3800+, the 4400+ or the AMD Optoner 165 ( this only if ur overclocking). if u are overclocking get a DFI Lanparty Ut ulrta-D, but if u want something cheaper the MSI K8n NEo4, if u arnt overclocking get the MSI anywayz. as for Thermal paste, most CPUs come with its own paste or thermal pad, but if u are going to overclock get Arctic Silver 5.
