My friend want to playing MMO in his PC, but his PC doesn't meet requirement for playing MMO games (like PB). And I want to asking about CPU support on Biostar P4M800-M7 A, is my Pentium 4 631 supporting it?

And more question, is GeForce 7600 GT 512 MB AGP worth for MMO? Because Point Blank can handling this (due it engine support DX 9.0 only).

Once again, how to do RAID in P4M800-M7 A with my two Barracuda 80 GB SATA?

Your motherboard has to support RAID,

Thats an old platform, using socket 775 and AGP graphics.

If the 7600GT is a AGP socket, it should work for him.

The P4 631 is only 1 core, but if you inable Hyperthreading, it will get a boost.

It's not my motherboard, it's my friend own. :D 

How to RAID them? I'm not understand. But, is the hard drive must be formated?

But is my P4 631 support in his mobo? I hesitated about CPU support, there's no CPU support list on Biostar site.

That processor will work in that motherboard,

You can do RAID 1 or RAID 0 with those 2 harddrives.

The basic procedure for implementing Windows RAID is as follows:

1. Open the Start Menu, right-click on Computer and select Manage.

2. Scroll down the tree on the right to Disk Management (under Storage) and click on it.

3. Right-click over the large drive icon to the left for operations that will affect the entire disk (extend, stripe, mirror, or RAID 5). Only what's available on your version and possible with your disk setup will be enabled. For some levels, a wizard will pop up. Follow the prompts. If the disk is not dynamic, this will automatically convert it.

4. On dynamic disks, right-click over a volume on the drive and you'll see an option to mirror that individual volume (Windows 7 Professional/Ultimate, Windows 2000 Professional, and Windows server OS's only).

Note: Depending on the amount of existing data, it can take an extremely long time for new Windows RAID mirrors to sync up, and disk performance will suffer till the process is completed. It's far faster to back up your files, create new mirrored volumes, then restore the data. If you do opt for letting Windows sync all the data, keeping Drive Manager open and on top will speed up the process.

Nah, it will be fine, just be sure you have a safe container to store it in so no dust builds up on it.

If not, what I can do? I have testing in my P5KPL-AM SE, then it doesn't boot up.

My mobo (P5KPL-AM SE) still work fine when I using Core 2 Duo and OEM RAM still work fine too! I think the CPU was dead.

BTW, how to overclocking on this (Biostar P4M800-M7A v.7.0) motherboard?

Your overclocking options are going to be very limited on this board, being that it is an old budget board, you would have to check and see what options you have in your BIOS.
