Is there a motherboard out there that supports an AMD socket 754 cpu with PC2 memory?
I'm probably asking if dinosaurs ever drove cars..but I wont know unles I ask.

The memory controller is built into the CPU, not the motherboard. S754 CPUs do not support DDR2 RAM.

I don't understand. First u ask for new cpu,board,graphic, now u want to upgrade your current system which is not possible as Jam said u can't use ddr2.Make up your mind.

Extreme budget build for your PC2-6400 RAM:

AMD Sempron 140 Sargas 2.7GHz 1MB L2 Cache Socket AM3 45W Single-Core Processor - $36

ECS A780GM-A Ultra AM2+/AM3 AMD 780G HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard - $54 after rebate

ASUS EAH4350 SILENT/DI/512MD2(LP) Radeon HD 4350 512MB GDDR2 - $20 after rebate

With any luck, that BIOS will allow you to unlock the 2nd core on the Sempron & turn it into a dual core CPU. The onboard HD 3200 graphics aren't bad (comparable to the HD 2400) so adding a video card isn't an absolute necessity unless you feel you need more graphics power. The HD 4350 can be added to enable Hybrid Crossfire, or you can disable the onboard video altogether & add an even better card.

For $110 (or $90 without video card), you'd have a budget system that will kick the crap out of your current system. In fact, it would be faster than the fastest P4 system.

Just to clear this up, I was going to upgrade all my components. Being on a budget, I started to think if a motherboard existed as I asked above, I could just use my pc2 memory with my current cpu. This would save me more $$. I did make up my mind Kuwese. Im sure you don't know everthing in life. You may think you do, but someday when you grow up, you will learn otherwise.

Jam, you answered what I needed. Thank You.
