    any one here have a clue on how much a new mother bord with p4 chip 2ghz that has 4 pci slots will run me plus 1000mb ddr ram i think its ddr the new stuff

    do they make mother bords with 4 slots for pci?

    i wouldnt even bother to upgrade but my darn mother bord only holds two pci cards it sucks cause i need 4 availiable slots :(

    Hi Blaze :)

    I have a little side-note:

    If I remember me well: you have a Gateway computer. Am I right?
    It could be that a standard motherboard doesn't fit in your PC.
    I really hope that I am wrong here, but I would advice to try to get info whether such a motherboard, that does not come from Gateway, will fit in your machine.
    I hope that there are users who can tell you more about this topic.

    Blaze - something to consider: if you change the motherboard in your Gateway (assuming that's what you've got) you will no longer be able to install the OS and software from your restore disk(s) and, technically, it would be a violation of your EULA to operate the system at all with a new board and the Gateway-supplied OS. Have you tried checking with Gateway to see what they offer? If you can get the board through them, this could resolve the OS issue.

    wha ok yup my pc is a gate way but its not in its standard box its in a huge boxwith 4 cd rom slots and like 8 slots in back for pci extentions lol i dont think room is an issue here lol

    lets see as for the os disk i use the xp os single disk and none of the other stuff on the other 4 or 5 cd's except for the modem driver on the drivers disk and thats it.

    so if the gateway disk says operating disk only plus i know where the xp set up is inside the disk you telling me it wont work on a new mother bord.

    well lets see the gateway is mine the cd's are mine yet you telling me i can't upgrade cause gate way some mofos that screw me on 23% intrest plus didnt tell me about the pc limitations nore told me it didnt come with the following

    graphics card
    room to expand
    room to upgrade
    a sound card
    the actual amount of ram to run norton and gateway utlity it came with
    told me this the pc i needed
    nore did they tell me that if the gateway cd's go bad with scratchs im screwed cause they wont replace the cds and yiu need the cd's to run gateway pc period

    or maybe that the gateway mother bord needs gateway specific hardware

    or that i couldnt replace the power supply cause it was soldererd on and the only one that could replace it was gateway

    that everything in gateway pc's to repair must go threw gateway so they can charge you 100 bucks an hour or something like that

    basicly any standard pc stuff to repair you just couldnt take it in to any pc shop

    and what eula they never told me squat

    as far as im concern from what they did to me and how much i over payed almost 3x the amount its worth frail them i owen it i bought it lol i should be able to do what i want with it

    everything on this gateway has already been replace with standard stuff

    just the motherbord left

    basicly dont buy a gate way there cheaters liers they basicly con men or really bad deallers

    there should be a lemon law on pc's

    if your going to buy a pc have one made for your specfic needs
    with standard parts
    so things can be upgraded

    make sure the following
    graphics card
    room to expand
    room to upgrade
    a sound card
    the actual amount of ram to run norton

    so can i or cant i get a new motherbord if so back to the question lol?
    ps the xp cd at stores is perty cheap anyway but if i can get alway with useing the xp os cd id rather perfer it save me the 40 bucks lol
