for $400 it really isn't worth it

you really should do what everyone suggested and get a new board

newer processors performs tasks faster for same amount of money

there is no point in spending $250 on a skt 939 cpu, makes no scence at all

Newegg.com - Intel Pentium E5200 Wolfdale 2.5GHz 2MB L2 Cache LGA 775 65W Dual-Core Processor - Processors - Desktops

Newegg.com - BIOSTAR TForce TP45D2-A7 LGA 775 Intel P45 ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards

Newegg.com - G.SKILL PI Black 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 900(PC2 7200) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Desktop Memory

comes close to $230, leaves room for a nice video card, will totaly anihilate the FX cpu.


The only thing ATi can render faster than nVidia is the BSOD
