OK, I need some help. I don't do alot of hardware related stuff so I'm going to give this my best shot.
I got an Intel 845 chipset motherboard with IBM oem branding. Socket 478 with 3 PCI and 1 AGP slot. I got a Intel Pentium 4 chip for it but the heat sync/fan doesn't seem to work with the mobo. All the online diagrams show a little plastic bracket around the socket where the HS should just snap in. But, since this bord is a few years old, it doesn't have that, it just has the 4 holes where it looks like i'm supposed to screw something in.
So that's my situation. Here are my questions.
1) Can I get the plastic bracket for the board anywhere?
2) Can I still use a PCI video card with it and not buy a new AGP one (there's no on board video)
3) I have a 145 watt power supply, considering the chipm the DVD burner, the DVD drive, and the IDE 60 gig hard drive, will this be enough.
is almost like the one I have (the only exception is the OEM branding and mine has 2 USB ports) and This is the processor/fan I bought
Any help at all, would be apprecaited.
