My pc has the following spec- ASUS Nforce2 A7N8X motherboard with AMD athlon XP 2400+ processor , 512mb ram and NVIDIA GeForce2 Integrated GPU (GeForce2 Integrated GPU) - NOT sure but does this mean that my graphis card is integrated with the motherboard?
My plan is to upgrade the processer ,Ram & graphics card .
The new processor will be - AMD Athlon™ XP 3200+, 2.2 GHz (AXDA3200DKV4E) OEM which has Front Bus frequency =200MHZ and clock multipler = 11 BUT exsisting OLD 2,4ghz chip has a front bus frequecency =133 mhz and clock multiplier = 15 will these differneces be automatically taken into account by the new chip and motherb or will i have to make some physical adjustments to either or the software?
Are there any stepping codes you know of that i should avoid?
The RAM i have NO problem with but the Graphics card if the old one is integrated how do i switch it off and when i place the new one in which will use the AGP cons and will be DDR2 will their driver setup disc lock after it's instalation or will i need to do any thing else?
You do not have an intergrated video card. You have a 1.5v 8x
AGP video slot.
I suggest you call Asus & make sure your CPU model AXDA3200DKV4E will be supported over model AXDA3200BOX.
You can call Asus tech M-F EST at 812-282-2787.

Only on second-hand sites like ebay. Example of a similar but better one http://cgi.ebay.com/Abit-AN7-Nvidia-NForce-2-400-Ultra-AMD-Athlon-XP-2500-/330435195881?cmd=ViewItem&pt=Motherboards&hash=item4cef78f3e9
Unfortunatly your still running low end CPU power and low end agp graphics. Your going to pay 150-200 just for a fair PCIe/AGP HD/3D VC. If $200 doesnt hurt (and this is the lowest price best option), then might I suggest Mobo/CPU/RAM for around $200 that would do the trick and allow for future upgrades. You might also need a power supply. I just built one less than 3 weeks ago for a friend and it fairs against my own gaming comp.
MY PC... AMD ATHLON 64 X2 DCP 6000+ 3.01GHz
XFX 8800GT AD 512MB
NEW PC.... Gigabyte GA-MA785GMT-UD2 MB $90+/- AMD Athlon™ II X2 250 BOX 3.0GHz (CAME W/FAN)$70+/- AND 4GB OF DDR3 1066 RAM COMPATIBLE WITH MOBO $40+/- THE ONBOARD VIDEO IS CAPABLE OF USING 700MB OF RAM...RGB/DVI OUT.
This motherboard supports AMD 939 pin Athlon 64 FX/ Athlon 64 processors with 1MB, 512 KB L2 cache which is based on 64 bit architecture. It features 1600 MT/s HyperTransport Bus, dual-channel unbuffered DDR400 memory support and AMD cooling Technology. So you should be able to use the RAM as long as it falls into the above specs. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.
No to the cpu you selected. Board would not support that cpu. The RAM you selected would probably work but for how long I couldn't say. With prices pretty low right now it would probably be better to purchase a new motherboard, cpu, & RAM. Hope this helps.
Max speed supported for your mobo is: DDR2-533 You will have to buy (4) 1gb sticks (2gb sticks not supported) To use all four gigs of ram you need a 64 bit os.32 bit only supports 3gb of ram. Hope this helps! Here is the specs :

*Actual available memory may be less w/o 64 bit os
Check these specs for your board.it will support 2gb but only if its pc2700.anything greater will not boot or become unstable quickly.here are your specs.also i am enclosing an ASUS link for any and all manuals etc. for this board.asus a7n8x-vm motherboard

Your pc is not for gaming right now because you are using Intel Pentuim 4 Mother board and CPU. Amd Athlon is best for gaming. I have a AMD Athlon 4200+ X2 with 4gb Ram and Nvidia 6800 256mb OC. to upgrade your computer to a gaming pc. you will need to switch your motherboard and cpu for best performance on games. in order to do that, you might need a different case for your new motherboard. because the one you have might not be right for the AMD Athlon motherboard unless you have a custom made computer. other than that everything is set for you. if you have less than 1gb ram you might want to add more. because the games they are coming with right now is 1gb minimum or required.
