  1. ok here's the thing... I am slowly upgrading my computer as I get the money. I was going to buy a new motherboard and a new processor, but at the moment I do not have the money to buy both so I am planning to go ahead and buy the new motherboard and wait on the processor. At the moment I have a pentium 4 2.4 ghz processor. I wanted to know if that processor is compatible with the asus a8n-sli socket 939 motherboard that I want to get.

    Thanks for the help.

    if they are not compatible could you suggest a good motherboard that later on I could use with a higher end athlon processor and that works for the pentium 4?

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    I`m afraid your cpu isn`t comaptible with the socket 939 mobo. Socket 939 is for AMD64`s only.
