    My brother want a AMD3 on his desktop case. He only need a new motherboard and a new memory ram to support a new AMD3 socket as he only got £300 cash. Are these order is ok to go ahead with the correct parts.

    Yes that looks fine
    However do you need that high end motherboard? You could get a lower motherboard and the X4 955BE

    I don't think my brother isn't fond of expensive intel. He rather to have AMD. No, I wouldn't lend him £25 but his shipping will be free of charge as long he paid me £300 cash to order it myself. (to lemin)

    Expensive? It's only £25 more and it's newer technology, will probably overclock higher and will be faster clock for clock. :confused:

    Have to say what LinktoInsanity has suggested makes sense to me.

    I have the same Mobo and CPU (had both very shortly after release) and am very happy with both. Both have turned out to be great overclockers, it is always worth conisdering both sides of the arguement though, espeically when 'This Week Only' happens to include some of the parts!
