Question Few Questiosns

Ok im getting ready to change out the cpu and motherboard so I have some questions. First, which of these four boards would be the best to go with for an AMD 64 Chip, or do you recommend another brand/model?

1. http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...131-490&depa=1

2. http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...131-498&depa=1

3.http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...127-177&depa=1

4.http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...127-178&depa=1

Second question, on the first board listed up top, for the slots on the board, it lists WiFi, what is that? I know what WiFi is but what is that slot for?

Third question, what is the difference between these chips, and why is one more expensive than the other, even though its the exact same thing?

1.http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...103-486&depa=1

2.http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...103-424&depa=1

Forth, is it better to get an OEM chip and buy myself a new heat sink and fan, or do the ones they come with work well enough?

Lastly, will all this stuff, along will everything else that is normally in a computer, fit nicely in a standard mid-tower ATX case, without extreme over crowding? Because I went to compusa today and looked at a Thermaltalk Fan for a 64 chip and it was massive compared to the one I have on my chip in my case now.

i've heard that AMD CPUs run hot quickly. so, i'd recommend getting a heatsink n fan urself. the diff between these chips is their cores. 1 is clawhammer n the other is Newcastle. i don't know which 1 is better. maybe some1 else can give u an opinion abt their cores.....
