You'll need to find which CPU will fit the motherboard's socket. Then compare CPUs and prices.

I'd suggest a mobo/cpu bundle which will guarantee compatibility. Have a look at the Novatech website.

ok . but i still haven't bought the parts yet so all i need to know is if ti go with an intel system or an amd system.

As per onthelimit1 - Novatech, a very good company to deal with.

As for Intel v AMD it is personal choice but AMD do tend to be cheaper (not inferior I may add)
