I am the rookie of all rookies. I know next to nothing about computers, but have been educating myself for the past 3 days. I must have read 300 pages worth of material trying to learn. This site--I stumbled upon it (THANK THE SWEET LORD)--has helped me more than everything else I've read. So I am going to rely upon you gentlemen (and ladies?) to educate me. I have an old CPU--Athlon K7 630 Mhz, 320 RAM 100 MHz FSB--that isn't cutting it with the new hard drive I have. Being the ***** I am, I bought a 160 gigabyte hard drive not knowing the CPU isn't powerful enough to operate it and the software I have. I'm in the process of getting more software that I need for my profession in addition to my lust for WarcraftIII battle.net. I love the custom games. So, please, please, please help me. I would like to buy a Pentium IV CPU 2.8 GHz and the appropriate motherboard for about $200.00. I found the CPU for about $160.00. If what I want is not practical than I am willing to settle for the Athlon XP 3200+ and the corresponding motherboard. I found that CPU for about $150.00. HELP HELP HELP HELP!!!!!!!!
