My system details are Intel Pentium 4-3.0GHZ, Motherboard model MS7131 Rev:1.0 has 512 DDR1 RAM. I want to upgrade this with some other motherboard which support 4GB DDR2/DDR3 RAM.

Please advice me on motherboard and processor for this.

Are you wanting to upgrade your processor TOO, or just find a motherboard which will support that processor but also faster ram?

When I was pricing out memory and a processor for a computer of similar age (but AMD) the price for the old stuff was just about what it was for newer stuff that was 10x better(literally).

You can buy a motherboard, processor(with on board graphics) and 8 gigs of decent memory for around 200 dollars these days.

Yes don't even consider DDR2. This question isn't really about RAM (just about every modern Board will take up to 4GB DDR3 RAM!) If you want recomendations about motherboards and processors have a think about what you want to use your computer for and at what budget. There will be tonnes of helpfull replies in the relevant sections.

I forgot to mention http://pcpartpicker.com/ is pretty much the first site anyone uses when looking at a new build. They let you build a system and check that all parts they offer you are compatable with your previous selections. I suggest playing about on there and then asking for feedback on what you have in mind.
