    sorry fella but in my last post check out the linked instructions, they are far better than anything I could write, just hover over the underlined text.

    Option 1 - Use the Asus Update Tool within Vista IF IT WORKS

    Option 2 - Put the DOS tool on a bootable floppy with the latest bios file

    I dont fink anyone here is going to okay that statement conclusively, alot depends on ur mobo, its a little dated and may have issues. That being said personaly having moved from P4 to C2D recently I was very impressed with the upshift in performance and a significant drop in heat generation. My take is that if u can then consider moving to a new mobo soon.

    If u lived in the Milton Keynes area I would happily drop my C2D and DDR2 into ur machine to test before u purchase but obviously that depends on location
