I would like to upgrade my motherboard to take advantage of a PCI express video card. My present system is an ASUS motherboard with an AMD XP 3000+, 1 GB DDR 3200 RAM. Can you recommend a board that I can use this processor and ram with PCI express or would it be better to just upgrade everything? Thanks. MG

If you wanted to upgrade computer now, I recommend the Intel  Core 2 Duo cpu with either Intel board or Asus, you might able to use your current ram. If not, stick with what you have.
