Ok guys, here goes nothing!
I am currently running a Intel Pentium 4 Northwoods 2.8 CPU on a ASUS P4S533-E motherboard. My motherboard takes the ddr memory 184pin unbuffered non -ECC PC2700, 2100, or 1600 Dimms only.
I have currently 1 Gig of ram. My motherboard does not have a PCIe X16 slot nor a PCIe x1 slot but only a AGP 2x4 slot and 6 PCI slots. Here is MY question guys! I want to upgrade, sooooo
1. if i get a new motherboard with a PCIe X1 and PCIe X16 slot can i keep my current P4 2.8 cpu??
2. can i keep my current DDR memory or will i have to upgrade to DDR2?? wish to keep the mem.
My problem occured when i went out and bought BF2, my current GE force4 TI4200 128 mem vid card could not hang, so then i bought a vid card, ATI radeon X1600Xt and it doesnt work with my current system!
Sheesh, where does it end?? its a PCI express vid card and im out of luck. Any help or comments will be appreciated, Im trying to upgrade for as cheap as possible utilizing most of my same crap!
