Nope, don't get that board.. It is 754 socket, which is extinct.. AMD does not make processors for that> I can tell you are on a budget, so go with these two things, It will be much better!

http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...128-274&depa=1

and this CPU-

And if that CPU is too much, I guess Go with THis one-

http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...103-499&depa=1
You will have to buy a heatsink with this one however, and REMEMBER!! YOU MUST BUY THERMAL COMPOUND TO PUT INBETWEEN THE PROCESSOR AND HEATSINK!! Here is a link to good stuff, but not best, since you are on budget:

Ok, GL

Your new config looks good if that's what you want to use. Your memory will work, but like you said, not running at it's peak efficiency. That's a good processor you're using.

YEAH MAYORREDBEARD!! You took my advice, it will not fail you!! Make sure you have thermal compound, good compound also!! Without it, KABOOM!! SIZZZLLEE!! No more CPU.... You MUST HAVE thermal compound. GL

Don't worry, when you get the parts, the MOBO is nForce3 Ultra, so it has unified drivers, so Internet wont be a problem at all. Just DL forceware off www.nVidia.com for you MOBO. Easy as pie.

To reformat, just pop in your XP disk, and it will have an option to format and reinstall, do that, and wala, new drive!

Thermal compound allows the heatsink to contact the processor. Without it, the processor will fry. You need to apply between 1-2mm of the compound to the top of the processor before mounting the heatsink and fan onto it. Forceware is nVidia's unified driver system. If you have nForce type MOBO, then basically, it is ALL the drivers and control applications for your MOBO in one nice package for you, easy eh?
