well it should go pretty well but i had problems with my dual core 3.2 ghz on games like gta iv but go to this site and follow the instructions and test it for the games you want mind you sometimes if not all it says you dont meet the requirements but you can see the recomended specs next to yours

Thanks
This board is a lot better then that ddr1 Athlon system personally the Athlon chips are crap.
I am not sure if I can play all games just yet as I am only running on my 128mb on board until I can get another card.

Basically had to sell my gtx for my board due to my low budget (Only getting $100 each fortnight and this goes on bills)

When I do get a job which I am currently looking i'm going to upgrade this machine

Thanks again

Money is probably the big factor lol

and I use to have a laptop it was the worst experience ever trying to play games on it unless your got a proper gaming laptop.

If your looking for a good cheap board look at this
MSI 945gm MS 7178 LGA 775 1066FSB DDR2 Desktop Motherboard | eBay

That's where I got my board from being in Australia the postage shouldn't be that much extra as i'm in queensland.

I hope I get a long life out of it being so cheap don't know what could happened.

I don't know how dangerous it would be overclocking with just the stock cooler installed.and what would be the intel version of over drive?
and that board looks great that would be a good upgrade

What do you think about my board :/
