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.
