Ok, like every one here said, i agree, get a new mobo and a new processor. Ok since you are not doing any gaming, the p4 will be better, but might run a lil more expensive. You don't need to get top of the line to be satisfied with you computer. Amd will also work really well even if it isnt for games. They run much cheaper for the non top of the class processor. You can get an amd 3000+ for round 100$. or get a amd 64 3200+ for 200. For the p4s, a 3 ghz is 200$. a 2.8 is 150. It is up to you, but i would really upgrade.
