    The CPUs are exactly the same. However the top one comes with a CPU cooler while the bottom one doesn't.

    Also you have an AGP motherboard don't you. It would make more sense to upgrade to a PCIe motherboard.

    Thanks for the reply,I believe the board also has 3 PCI slots. I wasnt sure if they were the same the way they described them. I wouldnt need the one with the fan, I just picked up a Cool Master Hyper 48 fan.

    Also what power supply do you have? It would suck to buuy those new components just to end up having to wait again to get a new PSU.

    Yes It is an AGP board, I misunderstood the PCI(e) as PCI.
