My memory actually is PC3200 not PC2700 because I have checked it with CPU-Z even though NewEgg said it was PC2700.
Lol, well this is looking like its going to turn out like a semi new build for you, because I would never settle for a Micro-ATX mobo when I can afford a ATX board. Just get a new case, psu, mobo, cpu.
You'll be set. YOu don't even have to buy memory. If you want to get an amd, get this one:
you don't have much longer to order it because the Opterons are selling quickly and are out of production. As for motherboard, check out the EPoX EP-9NPA+
Its great, and dosen't cost alot.
