Default Wondering about compatability

Hello, this would be my first post on this forum, although i have enjoyed reading up on a few things here for a couple of weeks now. I have decided (with a little inspiration from this wonderful place) to start building a computer for my friend, who is going to pay me for it. Anyway I was wondering if my things were compatable and hoping it would all work, took me a while to get to a comfortable price.

I was hoping if someone could tell me if

this

and

this

would work together, what throws me off is the hyperthreading thing, the motherboard says it but the processor does not, and it is my understanding that hyperthreading is the ability to run several things with ease (correct me if i'm wrong)

Any kind of reply would be appreciated , thanks in advance.

Well i have had some bad experiencise. I had a celeron ounce about 2.8 GHz and my friend had a 2 GHz pentium 4 proccesor and he kicked my *** speed wise. He was still faster Mabe it was becuase he had tonz of cache but his pentium preformed way better.

i think my processor is pentium 4 is it not?

I'm confused, it says pentium 4 based, does that mean its compatable with that botherboard for pentium 4's?

Yes it should work but in my opinion celerons would not be my choice i would reccomend you spend about 150$ on a real pentium quality proccesor.link

Oh...(damn)

Well think you can throw me suggestions.

Looking for a decent motherboard/processor combo that 100% compatable , decent speed, and combined under 175$, or close to it. I'd really appreciate any suggestions.
