And if it comes to a new motherboard, i don't really feel like spending over $300 at all, if that's even possible. In fact, i was thinking along the lines of under $100, that'd be ideal.
I wouldn't know the first thing about upgrading, i just predict it's gonna be hell cause i have to worry about my Processor (big box w/ the heat sink and cooling fan) and Chip (the little Intel labeled piece), assuming a chip and a processor are different. I guess it would be too much to ask for an SLI compatible motherboard w/o having to upgrade my processor and crap?
PS, i won't be offended if you laugh at my miniscule knowledge about computers, i know i'm retarded.
Checked out some of those motherboards you offered me and i found a few for under $100, kinda suprised.

Anyways, i'll give you the specs on my PC off hand and i'd ask you if this new motherboard might support it:
Intel Pentium 4 Processor w/ HT Technology 3.0GHz, 1GB dual channel low-latency DDR PC-3200 at 400MHz - 2 x 512MB
Would all this still work on this board you suggested me?
I really do appreciate all the help, gone above and beyond pointing me in the right direction, thanks again.
