More information on your board would be needed to give you information. Not sure what processors will work. If you can give the brand and model, I can be more helpful :tazz:

First off, you cant put AMD on an Intel board. Second, There is a site somewhere that lets you put in your board type and model number and it gives you a list and the fastest processor it will support. I will se if I can find it, but maybe somebody else already knows. Ethier way, with an Intel board you have to stick with an Intel CPU.

Forget an asrock MB, go with an ABIT MB. As far as buying parts, newegg.com is great, shipping is cheap and great stock. but I have an AMD 2800+ with an ABIT MB and im perfectly happy with it. (With processor, MB, and RAM i only spent about 300 bucks.)
But if u want to go AMD then u will have to get a new bourd...
If u want to save money I would keep the board u have and look up the serial# on the Motherboard, NOT THE SERIAL# OF THE COMPUTER.
But newegg is a great website for comp stuff, when u find the serial# on the MB look it up on Emachines website or just google it.....then go to newegg...

What i would do is sell your current pc, and start all over on a custom built pc.


Look and see how big of a pentium 4 chip your current motherboard will fit first!

We need more info on your pc first, motherboard,model of pc.
