Allright heres the deal.. right now I have a Abit NF7-S v2.0 with AMD Athlon XP 3000+ BARTON

Will i get a huge performance hit when i upgrade my MOBO AND CPU

[This is what I want to buy]

AMD ATHLON 64 4000+ 2000F 1MB S939 BOXED

My other specs are

2 x 512 MB ram PC3200 [Dual channel]
Geforce 6800 GT 256 MB DDr3 (that's the reason i dont wanna buy a PCI-E card yet..

Also would any S-ATA disk be better than ATA disk.. right now i have 2 ATA HD's

Maxtor 6E040L0
DiamondMax Plus 9
7200 RPM

Maxtor 6Y160P0
DiamondMax Plus 8
7200 RPM

Would it be good to upgrade HD to?
I play a lot of Battlefield 2 and i want to load Superfast in games...

All replies are welcome

Thanks in regards

That wouldn't be a bad processor, and having a faster hard drive can certainly help your processor and ram load information faster.

Coming from a socket A (1.2 tbird) mobo, I chose the asrock 939dual sata2 as a way to create a long term upgrade path for my cpu(939 to AM2 to AM3 for only 30 more dollars!), graphics (agp to pci-e) and memory. I've been very pleased with how oc friendly it is and that I don't have to upgrade everything at once. Swap as many old parts over as you want and spend when you're ready to, not when you're forced to.

on the downside, i think ppl are having trouble with vist on it.

Yeah it has lot's of upgrade options on it.. that's nice :) 

I'm getting the CPU (not boxed BTW) I decided to go with a Arctic Freezer 64 Pro (will this be a good cooler)

Thx :)

I just received a call from my PC shop:

Seems that I won't be getting a AMD 64 4000 After al,

I will be getting a X2 3800 as replacement..

Should I be happy???
