Well this is the fifth year my computer has been used (HARD use).

Since i`ve still got a perfectly good computer and instead of buying a new system i thought i could maybe give this one a new leas on life and upgrade the MB/CPU...

I was thinking something about like this

MotherBoard
And maybe this CPU or this one

I am kind on a budget of about $200 :)

EDIT:

And this Ram

I`m going to buy the MB (If its all going to work with my stuff) and see if my parents will get the P4 and Ram for my B-day

Looks good. You can download the manual from the Biostar website to tell you more. Don't forget you need memory, one gig is about the minimum these days.

You will have to tell us the rest of your components to insure that they will be compatible with the new parts you are buying.

Also, what is this computer being used for?

Reading the reviews on that board will the P4 fit the socket?


Review:

Cons: The board's box says fsb 1333, but new egg specs say fsb 1333 and fsb 1066. Newegg specs also include compatibility with Quad-core / Core 2 Extreme / Core 2 Duo / Pentium D / Pentium 4 / Celeron 400 Series / Celeron D. I have a feeling lots of people will be RMA ing boards if they buy the wrong LGA 775 processor.
