if your going to spend 200 on a MOBO(motherboard) then your going to need a newer CPU. if you go with a Intel then go for socket 775 and if you decide to switch to AMD then get a MOBO with socket 939.

i like my MOBO. you would need to buy a socket 775 to use this MOBO. the socket of the CPU and the MOBO has to match to work together.

with this MOBO you would only be able to use 2/3 of your sticks. this MOBO does have 4 slots but 2 are for DDR memory and 2 or for DDR2 memory.

Here is what I would do:

Get a new AMD64 processor and a good PCIe motherboard. I am fond of ABIT's current 939 pin motherboard derivatives and also DFI.

Here is what I think you should get:

CPU:

Motherboard:

Bro... he did mention he has a budget.. aka.. 200 for the motherboard, 200 for the CPU. LMAO, but yeah, if he had that much, that is a good idea.
