CPU/Mobo/Memory compatibility Question Tags: CPUs Compatibility Last response: June 3, 2006 8:11 AM in CPUs Share fazumar June 2, 2006 9:33:18 PM Hello all, My questions is this, I currently have a Pentium 4 3.00 GHZ processor; 1 gb of ram; and an outdated Mobo that only has AGP slots, and I am looking to upgrade to a mobo with PCI-E for gaming reasons. My question is this, Do I have to replace the CPU and Memory, or are there types of Mobos that I can just switch out those 2 components, as it is pretty much the dealbreaker if I cannot. And if I CAN do this, Can someone recommend a stable, inexpensive PCIE mobo with a gamer in mind. Many thanks!
