This exercise often cost just as much as building with current tech. Please supply us with a little more information>

Is there RAM installed on the board?
Did you get the OS and driver disks?
What case do you have, Brand/model.
What PSU is installed, Brand/model.
What video card would you be using, Brand/model.

CPU support page, > http://www.evga.com/...rt/motherboard/ scroll down to > For all older motherboards, click here.
The E8600 Is the highest CPU that is compatible, at launch, $285, still available, #205. Far to expensive. > http://www.legitrevi...om/article/769/
I would have gone for the E8500, but the best price I can find is $200 > http://www.legitrevi.../article/668/1/

If the board has no RAM installed, DDR2 is also expensive 4GB about $70.

This board is not installed as of yet just trying to see if it would even be worth it to use it. I don't have anything other then the board and was figuring on using the Ram that is in my computer already cause I believe it is a DDR and will work but have not really checked it out yet. Thinking the CPU would be the most expensive so was just trying to get that info. The case is a Antec server case and I the PSU I will probably replace also with a better one cause as I said this system was build for my grandkids so everything in it is pretty cheap and its really slow. Right now it has Windows XP Home on it but I will be upgrading to 7 if I do put this motherboard and that is another question I have cause it says its Vista ready so will this make a differents?

Thanks for all your help and I will get back to you later as to what is on this system now...

Gday.
If you download and run Speccy, it will tell your everything about your computer, including installed software. The only infro it can't see is the PSU Size/brand. You will need to inspect it yourself and let us know the brand and model.
