Yes it will be fine. The dual core Pentium however will not be compatible with your motherboard.

Stick with the 5450
According to Intel's site for that CPU (Cedar Mill P4 631), it's a socket 775 which is the same socket as the E2140 (you would probably need to update your motherboard BIOS for that though)

That Pentium 4 used 86W while the E2140 uses 65W, the 5450 is also a lower powered card so it should probably work.

I will buy them next week.....Will it play prototype 2 or any modern game at decent fps with low-medium settings?

Sadly, I don't think so, they wouldn't run very well (even at minimum settings).

You'd be better off building a new machine if you want to play any modern games :|

I see but i saw this:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IHWiYQktGgk it was playable even on a Pentium 4 ht(overclocked to 3.6) mine is overclocked to 3.4 ghz.

My bios is phoenix technologies ver. 6.00 date 12/4/2006...will it detect both???

So, it means that both of them isn't going to work? Or its going to work but will not be detected by the bios??

There is no guarantee, you'd have to check that with the motherboard manufacturer

It probably wouldn't POST if that were the case, you could probably look around for some second hand/older PCI-E cards to buy

You could certainly ask them about it then try that upgrade, just to stay on the safe side
Sorry, I can't give a guarantee on something like that which I'm not too sure about :( 

These parts wouldn't last you very long in terms of gaming, are you thinking of getting a build for gaming anytime soon?
