Yeah, your old CPU is very slow, but I am not sure old DDR memory will work with it. Have you alreadu ordered it?????? Also, that is a pretty long post, you could shorten it by just saying you current configuration, what mobo you ordered, and then what CPU you ordered and then ask the question. You didn't really need all the other stuff, but it's okay. It's your first post, so don't worry about it. If you haven't ordered it maybe I could suggest some stuff that you know would work.

Welcome to THG!

Ok, you only needed to post the Cpu and mobo; that's basically the only things I looked for when searching your monster post. :o 

You should see a decent performance boost; should be a little over 2x; maybe more like 2.5x. Do you have new Ram to go with the proc and mobo? You would need DDR3 instead of DDR to go with the build.

Yeah i bought 4GBs ddr3 ram for it. Will the onboard HD 4250 onboard GC out do the 8400 gs im using now?

And i just got that processor just cus of the price, but later i could get a Phentom ll x6 processor for it XD


is that a pretty good mobo because micro atx was the only thing i could fit in my case cuz ATX wouldent fit.also if i put a really good pci-e card in it will i be able to game really well? cuz i know the HD 4250 will do ok for a little bit till i can afford a nice card

Yeah, it should. I am not sure though. If you want a decent GPU for under for a cheap price, get this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... It will outperform your 8400 by like 3 times. BTW, make sure your HDD will work with the motherboard too. Besides that, it sounds good. Also, one last thing to look at, make sure your PSU will work with everything. (e.g. that you have enough power, you have a 20 24 pin motherboard power connector depending on the motherboard you ordered, etc.)

Yeah, a GPU is the heart of any good gaming PC. Grab something like a GTX 5xx or a hd68xx or above. They will do you well. A x6 is a great CPU, but if you want to game, X4 series CPUs sometimes perform better for some reason and cost less. You won't need 6 cores, 4 cores is fine.

One more thing, make sure the card will fit in the case you have. And yes, the mobo is good. It's ASUS, so it will be a quality motherboard! ;)

well my power supply is a 20 pin and the mobo is 24 pin, but they say it will work as long as im not using a pci-ecard. now when i get a power demanding card ill change to whole power supply out. ill only be running the mobo/processor, hdd, and dvd drive/with a 2 fans with my current power supply

Okay, sounds good! ;)  Just make sure you don't OC or anything like that until you hvae a new PSU. Also, make sure you have at least 350w to make sure you can run all of that.
