how many slots are availible on your motherboard for memory sticks?

1, 2, 3, 4 or more?

if your mobo says you can use dual channel ram, then i would guess you can use 2 sticks of 512mb no prob.

and you said your mobo is a socket 478 pin.

so any socket 478/P4 heatsink with a minimum of 2.8 should be what you're looking for.

and sure.

upgrade that video card if you have a powerful PSU. it'll do wonders.

^^ 420's not bad at all.

but if,

i mean,

when you upgrade your PSU, don't skimp on it and get a cheapie!

you'd be amazed by how many people don't consider a good strong

PSU when they order a $2500 "gaming rig" and get a $10 psu that

ruins the whole machine!

good luck w/ your upgrades!

cheers...

^ hey, if it suits your needs, then that's all you can ask for right?

ASuS makes great mobo's, i just put my A8V Deluxe together...just waiting for the new PSU to come in any day now cause the one that came w/ my case just doesn't power it enough.

cya.
