    I have a computer with a P4 2.8GHz and 512MB of DDR. I really hate the motherboard in it. It has next to no overclocking features and it doesn't even support DDR333, the most it officially handles is 266. I have a 400 stick in it though... I was wondering if I would be able to get a s478 motherboard with PCI-E support so I could use my 8500gt for folding at home on it.

    I don't care about overclocking features or anything like that. As long as it's socket 478, supports DDR1 and has PCI-E

    Sweet newegg carries them. Whenever I get 50 bucks to myself, I guess I'll be swapping motherboards.

    On that note, do you think that a 300W 10A power supply can handle a P4, 1 stick of DDR1 RAM, an 8500gt and a 120GB hard drive for folding?
