    well i recently bought a 3500+ processor i Overclocked it to 2.4 GHZ it runs smoothly
    you asked what MOBO should you get, well if i were to buy a new one now with a 939 socket go with a:
    ASUS A8N-SLI or SLI DELUXE or MSI K8N Neo4 Platinum/SLI.
    They both feature the NVIDIA NForce4 chipset with dual PCI Express X16 slots, but then if u want to experience the full power of PCI Express, the graphic cards aint cheap Note: These mobos do not have the AGP slot
