A P4SD eh? That's S478. Yes, you can have a board with PCI-E and a board with PCI-E AND DDRII.

Ask you local store for an Asrock P4VM890 for the PCI-E only or a BIOSTAR P4M900 for PCI-E and DDRII. Make sure you ask for the S478 though.

Get a new mobo, it's the way to go. DDR2 and 775, pci-e too. It will cost a little more but you will have better upgrading potential. Also sell the old equiptment.

Default Re: motherboard question

well alright Im goin to sell my mobo memory and processor. but now comes to what do I get now? should I go with amd or intel? what is buss speed compared to ghz?http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...ame=Processors
I was looking at processors and I got confused on what the diffrence was. whats more important? I thought that intel had a 3.0 ghz processor, and I thought that that was good but then I saw that the buss speed was only 800 compared to amd that had a 2.40 ghz processor with 1000 mhz. so whats better? what should I get?
