A motherboard that supports the old Pin-Type Processors? (Edited)


The current generation processors are pin-less, right? Two years back, we had processors with pins in them. A friend of mine who has very little budget wants to upgrade his old P III. He is thinking about changing just the motherboard & RAM. But the shop where I usually buy my components said that the processor must be the old type with pins & none of the current motherboards with DDR2 RAM & PCI-E graphic card slot will support that processor. Is that 100% accurate? What about Asus P5S MX-SE? He said this model is hard to come by right now, but it is available in ebay. His budge is 4k, to be exact. Any suggestions? I also need more info on which boards support this old pin-type processors.

Edit: The information is wrong. Look at post #5

yes that is 100% accurate, none of the MB's with PCI-Express have support for a P3 processor.
and if your friend is ready to spend upto 4K, just get the ATOM 1.6 GHz + Motherboard at around Rs 3500.

It will give much better performance than a P3.

How would changing the motherboard count as an upgrade? Find a faster P3 to plug in there or buy a chepo cpu+mobo combo?

Re: A motherboard that supports the old Pin-Type Processors?

Er.. sorry, my bad. He has a Pentium IV processor and his motherboard is MSI 915GLM-V. It has a PCI-E x1 slot. So, is it better to change the board or get a graphic card? Are PCI-E x1 & PCI-E x16 compatible with each other? What is the best thing to do to improve this for gaming with a budget of around 4k to 6k?

Re: A motherboard that supports the old Pin-Type Processors?

no gpu upgrade recommended on a p4. u wont be able to enjoy latest games.
sell the 915 + p4 + ddr1 rams...for 2k-2.5k.
Total 8.5k in hand so get a ga31-s2l for 2.2k + e5200 3.5k + 2gb ram 1k.
Use onboard graphics till your friend accumulates enough for his gaming needs choices are 4670 512mb gddr3 for 5.5k odd, palit 4850 8.2k odd.
Though for the 4850 he wud need an smps change aswell.

Technically yes they are compatible.. look at the config mentioned in my signature and you will understand.. but believe me.. that is a very dumb thing to do.. Like somebody said, it would be like putting a ferrari engine into a premier padmini taxi.

I am ugrading to a i7 so this is only a stop gap arrangement.
