Hello all,

I need some afvise regarding a CPU and GFX upgrade for my system.

I run the following configuration:

Motherboard: MSI K8T Neo2-F (Socket 939 MS-6702E)
CPU: AtlonXP 3500+
RAM: 4 x 512Mb (PC3200 DDR333)

I would like to upgrade to a dual core CPU but can only get a Dual Opteron and not the Dual Athlon. Will this work in my current motherboard, and will it be an ok solution?

Regarding my GFX, I have to look for an AGP solution.

Will it be better and cheaper to upgrade motherboard, CPU, RAM and GFX so I can use PCI-E GFX boards?

Thanks

\Jens
