Does it matter how fast you processor is, i mean are most processors compatible with most newer motherboards?

I went though this when building my computer. Yes, they are the minimum speed for my board was 1GHz and a 200MHz FSB. Look at the manual for the motherboard.

there are however, certain specifications such as the type of memory and combatibility of the cpu that limit the motherboard to an older and/or slower processor :thumbsup:

the best way to find these things out is visit your local pc parts store and look around at the employees they have there.. when you see an employee that you could see as a friend go up and talk to them.. its best to find someone who will tell the truth and not try to sell you ocean front property in Arizona. ask them about specific boards or chips what ever your question. i always try to stick with smaller shops because usually there alot more pc savvy than the bigger stores.. bigger stores watch there $ so they hire kids to do a techs job. another thing to do is research yourself.. thats the only way to get an unbiased opinion.

Or you may ask someone like me who won't sell you anything more than you need. Go to my site, use the free program that analyzes your cpu. I can lead you from there.
