Default Help me!

Hi, I am thinking of upgrading my computer and would like to make sure of something. Are these two parts compatible with eachother?

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819116230

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...2E16813131566R

Also will DDR PC2700 RAM work with this motherboard?

yes and yes, but i would recommend getting PC3200 ram for that mobo.

EDIT:i would also recommend upgrading to an AMD setup rather than that intel chip. AMD had much better chips at that time.

MOBO: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131569

CPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103622

OR

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103535

BOTH OC VERY WELL.

yes, i belive so. Someone please correct me if im wrong. Also don't buy anything until more people confirm this.

edit: this post concerns the question about the ram. and yes, AMD 64 is a much better CPU than an intel prescott.

This one has both AGP and PCI-express so u can upgrade to pci-E without buying a new mobo.

Yeah.....Pentium 4s arn't all that great.....Netburst architecture sucks....Pretty much most people on these forums will agree to stay away from Intel unless your getting a core 2 duo, which are pretty highly recommended.

This doesn't cost must more and is an awsome cpu in that price range...And some1 has also suggested it by the looks of it...

I don't have a cheap motherboard to suggest though.

I would recommend an Opteron 146, if you know how to overclock, over the 3700+. They both have a 1mb l2 cache, but the Opteron starts on lower stock speeds, but it's full potential with overclocking is higher. And it costs less..

how about motherboard-wise? I have an AGP card right now and i want to be able to use it for a while but i also want to be able to upgrade to PCI express in the future. are there any good mobos with the specs in the first post that has both slots but are actually good boards?

EDIT: also, I'm seriously considering the Opteron chip, so please include that in your suggestion.

Thanks to all that help!
