upgrade is my choice OK or ?

I've decided to upgrade my motherboard & cpu. I have decided on an Asus P4P800S motherboard & an Intel P4 3.0Ghz 800FSB cpu plus 512 of DDR ram. I have seen some reports that the fan supplied with the cpu is noisey, has anyone any thoughts or experiance on my choice or is there a better package.

Hi, I have no experience with your choice, so, why Intel against AMD? and why this particular combination?
only being thought provocing.

If you are going to change from an AMD to P4 make sure that the PSU support the P4 there is an extra 4 wire lead and plug for P4

My current Motherboard is an Asus P2B & cpu is an Intel P3 500 so I thought I'd stick with the same manufacturers.
Any more thoughts or info would be appriciated.

Thanks for the link.
So maybe I won't be upgrading just yet, at least not using the the products I had chosen.
I'll have to do some more research.
