next to processor it says " need replacement"

and later you want to re-use it .???


am I missing something ?

If you want a motherboard then use an AM3+ board. The ASUS M5A97 evo would be my first choice , but your needs may be different.

Use 2 x4 gig of RAM unless you know the program you are using is 64 bit .

Yup, I need to replace the Mobo as it's kinda broken right now (random crash without BSOD)
and need to upgrade my ram up to.

And yup, i know about the 64bit system lolz :D 
I know about hardware stuff but after review a lot of Ram set on Newegg, they are all mixed between good and bad review so i just cant decide which one should I get :D 
so please recommend the 4x4gb or 4x8gb Ram set that you think is good for budget build ^^.

Thanks,
