buying mother board

Recommended Posts

hey lewis my grafix card is AGP will it work with that board?

No that board has PCI Express.

this is probably the best board there http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813123257

If you can afford it, i would recommend upgrading to a core 2

I agree i would recommend upgrading to a Core 2 Duo. You wont be dissapointed

Most likely you are going to need motherboard, memory, and processor.. Since 754 didn't support DDR2.. The memory is not the fastest that the board supports..  But it will get you started..

Athlon is AMD's flag ship.. Kinda like Pentium is Intels..  The only thing that I would caution against as far as what you are trying to do here.. there is going to be a point that you will not be able to upgrade on the 754 platform...  As it stands right now the 939 is in the process of being phased out, leaving the 754 and the AM2.. The original idea, or from what I have read, was that all new processors would be developed for the AM2.. Leaving the 754 for the Sempron and other budget CPUs..
