If you saw the post I made before editing, ignore it. I was wrong... :tazz:

Turns out, I actually ordered the parts off of Newegg seperately for the same price.

This is the processor I am getting...

Hey, you found the 2.8 prescott. nice! :tazz:

real good place to start with, and your board should be able to support a good sized cpu upgrade in the future. good work.

hacp is correct, no HT on that pcu.  HT cpu's will be referred to as prescott.  I think there is a 2.8 with it, otherwise your looking at the 3ghz and up.

take another look at the links I posted earlier, they will get you HT, and the first one is slightly cheaper then your current link.
remember with the second one I posted, after you add the HSF, its about $400.  thats your mobo, cpu, ram, and hsf.
add a video card, case, and psu, your there.  you would be looking at about $600 total, assuming you dont need to buy a CD drive or floppy.  if you need those, add another $50 (roughly).

we can tweak things depending on how tight your budget is.  and as is always the case with computer stuff, wait a few weeks, the prices will drop again...

Which is exactly why it will take less time for me to save for a new computer!
