    I`m having trouble upgrading my mobo.I have an older p4 1.40 ghz standard type cpu.The original mobo is a ecs model925 v1.0 with fsb @400mhz Iwant to upgrade my video but this board only handles 4x agp.I have tried a pc chips p4 fsb800 model m981g and an abit v17 pt880 and both did the same thing-they powered up but did nothing else,no video,no dos not even a code beeb. With the abit i even upgraded to a 400w power supply.Right now I`m not sure but I believe i have a 300w supply installed. I guess my question is can I get a mobo-cpu combo,and if I do do i have to reinstall my hdd to this board.It is a hitachi deskstar 7k80 80gig 7200rpm.The vid card i have-want to use is an xfx nvidia gforce 5200 fx agp-8x ,any suggestions are welcome.
