Why and how the hell is their a 3400+ XP?

I suggest getting a socket 939 because your CPU is the old slow socket A. But your mobo looks like a newer socket???

You're right about there being no 64bit XP, but that's probably just a typo.

The sockets are 754's, not A's.

ok so then would this be better:

MSI - nFORCE3 K8N NEO 2 PLATINUM (7025-010), ATX, 5 x PCI, 1 X 8xAGP SLOT, 4 X DUAL DDR400 SLOTS, 4 x S-ATA, nFORCE3, 8 CHANNEL AUDIO, DUAL GIGABIT LAN, FIREWIRE AND RAID 0/1


ATHLON 64 3000+ 1.8GHZ, 512K (ON REQUEST ONLY) for use with MBD40229



and would this setup be fat enough for the latest games?
