Hi, I'm looking at upgrading my computer sometime this year. I really only want to replace the motherboard and CPU, but if needed I can do others. I really want to try and not spend too much, I am still in school, and my job is at KFC Here are my current specs: Motherboard - Gigabyte GA-8I848P(-L) CPU Type - Intel Pentium 4, 2800 MHz (21 x 133) System Memory - 1536 MB(PC3200 DDR SDRAM) Monitor - ViewSonic VP720 Series Video Card - RADEON 9600 PRO Sound Card - Sound Blaster Live 5.1 Disk Drive - ST3120022A (120 GB, 7200 RPM, Ultra-ATA/100) Disk Drive - WDC WD3200JS-00PDB0 (298 GB, IDE) Optical Drive - SONY CD-RW CRX230E Optical Drive - SONY CD-ROM Drive Optical Drive - SONY DW-U18A We've had this computer for about 4 years. I have done a few upgrades. (Memory, Graphics card, DVD burner, Hard Drive) After the motherboard and CPU are done, I will look into a new dvd burner, and graphics card (possibly nVidia GeForce 8800). The reason I'm asking here is I don't want to risk buying something without researching enough if its compatible with everything else. Thanks, alien13.
