Yes, it has a PCI Express x16 slot for your graphics card, and takes DDR2 memory modules like the ones you already have.

Yes, you always want to do a clean install of the operating system when you change motherboards. It's sometimes possible to allow the operating system to load drivers for your new hardware setup, but I don't recommend it all.

I've successfully moved a hard drive that already had Windows on it, over to another motherboard, then booted from that drive, and had it actually working. However, I would NEVER do this for any other reason than experimentation. A clean install with a new motherboard is the only way to go, really.

Only if you understand exactly what your doing. Don't try overclocking without studying the subject exaustively. You could give your CPU, or FSB too much voltage, and trash your rig. I generally advise against it, because there are few people I run into that actually understand exactly what they are doing.

I happen to know how, and the principles behind it, but I've never ran my rig overclocked for very long. I'm not into gaming, so I don't need to overclock. I would rather have stability, as well as hardware longevity.

Question on the OS, do you have a full install disc or is it a reinstall disc from HP? is your current comp an HP build? If so, you might not be able to install the OS on the new system....dont know though...

If you could find me the motherboard and CPU bundle on a European website, that'll be great. Such as Overclockers, Ebuyer, Amazon UK.

MadMaxData, i have fully researched on the products that you have mentioned, they are good i am very statified with them. But right now they are too expensive for me, however i will bare in mind about these products for the future. I play alot of games on my PC, and use for my pc for design. As you may already know my specification, are they good for now? if not, they please tell me how i can make tweak or optimize them to the full potential use of the hardware, which i currently have.

Thank you
