Here I have a rig I am upgradeing, and inside it is a Asus P4S-800MX Motherboard, I wanted to buy an Intel Pentium G860 and install it, is that possible, and are they compatible?, I currently have a Pentium 4 rateing in at 2.8 GHZ, but its a single core ;( I am looking to play more intensive games like Crysis 2, Diablo III, and Black Ops II (When released). If that processor is not compatible, could someone please tip me off on a decent processor that is?

Thank you!

No, the G860 is a LGA 1155 CPU and that board is Socket 478 (EXTREMELY limiting, as far as upgrade options go).

Here's the supported CPU's list http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Intel_Socket_478/P4S80... but it looks like the best that you can do is a P4 HT 3.4Ghz.

Honestly, it's not worth upgrading that (you'll NEVER be able to play ANY of those games with ANY upgrade that you can do). Time for a completely new system, I'm afraid.

Edit: Took too long to get my info, lol.
