Hello all,

I'm trying to recycle some old parts of mine to produce a functional computer, but I'm missing the motherboard, to hold everything together. If anyone could link me one that would be compatible, it would be very much appreciated.

Here's what I have to use so:

Intel Pentium 4 640 Prescott CPU @ 3.2Ghz w/ HT [Socket 775 LGA]
512MB DDR2 RAM PC2-4200 @ 533Mhz
Western Digital 80GB HDD [IDE]
NVIDIA GeForce 512MB 9600GSO GPU [PCI-E x16 2.0]
APEVIA X-Trooper Jr Case w/ Side Window
ATX-TL450W-BK Power Supply

I was looking at this one:
MSI G31TM-P21 LGA 775 Intel G31 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=EN...

However, I'm a little worried that it doesn't support my CPU/RAM too well.. can anyone clarify?

Thanks in advance,

Ahh I see... I decided to look @ the manufacturers websites for CPU compatibility and I actually found some information which newegg did not have... which is not so surprising actually.

For example, these MOBOs support the Intel Pentium 4 640:

The difference with these new boards is that they use DDR3 RAM, so I'll have do ditch my existing DIMM,
But... RAM is quite cheap --> 8GB for ~$30-35 at my local store.

Come to think of it... I can also buy the motherboards @ my local store...

Very true, but I already have a main computer. The point of this is just to recycle old parts because I would hate throwing them away if they are perfectly functional.
