I bought a GeForce 1GB 7950. I wasnt paying attention when it said PCI Express, not thinking if I had that or not, I was just simply thinking "PCI, Oh I have that!". So now I also bought 1024mb (2x512) of Corsair Ram, only DDR. So my issue is...what kind of motherboard can I get without having to get DDR2, I cant afford that at all and I dont want to give up what I bought, thats if I can even return it but that will be the last thing I would want to do. All I know about my Processor is that its a Pentium 4 HT 3.0GHZ and it came with my Dell Dimension 4600. I don't know where to look for any other technical information on it to see what motherboard I can use with it. Can someone please help me find a motherboard that would work with what I have already that has a PCI Express slot so I dont have to waste over $200 more. Thanks.

Well, I found this motherboard and is wasn't to hard to find a 775 socket motherboard with DDR 333/400MHz ( That's PC 2700 and PC 3200 )
