Default Cpu And Mobo

ok i have a 2.7ghz intel celeron processor, i dont feel like upgrading the mobo since i just bought it, the motherboard is "AOpen AX4SPB-UN" i was wondering if with that motherboard i could put in this processor, the "INTEL - Pentium-4 3.2eGHZ, 1024K "Prescott" 800FSB S478" if i could that would be amazing because im looking into playing games now and i dont think my cpu is gunna run the games like it should. I'm buying a radeon 9800 128mb pro AIW and i want that card to not be bottle-necked by my cpu.

Looking at playing games at almost full everything if not full everything...games i wanna play are:
FAR CRY
HALF LIFE 2
DOOM 3
and a few others..cant think of them right now...any help would be appreciated

do you think this cpu is good enough? oo yea im also using 512mb ram

DPN paintballer, amd is not for cheap gamers. tru, they're cheaper, but they're better in games, benchmarks prove that. And if you didn't know already, AMD is the only ones with 64 bit processors that work with 32 bit applications, and if you still think that Intels 32 bit processors are better than amd64's 64 bit processors with integrated memory controller, den ur insane.

money man, yes, that cpu will work on your mobo. Your motherboard supports socket 478 processors, and that cpu is 478. Plus, your motherboard goes up to 800mhz fsb and that processor fits just that.

SO yes, it'lll work. And I don't think you fully grasp what a bottle neck is. A bottleneck is when one component of your computer is too fast and thus, hindered by another component.

Example, you have a Nvidia 6800 ultra. Your cpu would be a bottleneck for this video card, as the card is insanely fast. Unless you overclock this cpu to 3.6-3.8, you will experience a bottleneck.

btw, what video card do you have???

If you could oc this processor to 3.6, then it'd be nicely paired with a Nvidia 6800 GT.
