    Question Upgrading...

    Hi everyone,
    I'm new to the fourms, so...Hey!
    I got a few questions about upgrading my computer.
    But beware, I'm gunna sound like a major n00b,but here goes.
    I wanna upgrade my 1001Mhz Athlon to somthing more current.

    1)Is there anything else I need to buy besides a Mobo, CPU, and memory to do the upgrade???

    2)I was looking at the XP 3200+ Bartons, but is there any other suggestions on the CPU, like the XP mobile?

    3)I also need a mobo (which is why Im posting here),and I wanna stick to ASUS cause I've heard they are good quality.

    4)And I want an NForce chipset...but what do I know, thats why I'm asking you guy's

    I'm not looking for the top of the line, but I want in the mid-range (not looking to spend the money on the Athlon64's).

    So, any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance,
    Jace_4

    one thing,
    I was looking around newegg and I see the just for the CPU,
    the Athlon 64 3000+ is for 8 dollars more, thats a slower speed, same cache, but there's the 64-bit....
    whatever, I wanna know what the overclockers think.

    Check my sig for specs with A7n8x board. I like it. But, if I were buying now...I would go for the DFI board, you can get a lot more fsb.

    Would and Opteron be a choice?
    the 1MB cache looks enticing... Alothough the speed is much slower.

    Or is it better to stick with the XP?

    Edit---how do i knoe what form factor to get???
