Well heres the thing...i just purchased some new parts for my computer and i realized that i have an agp 4x slot but my videocard requires an 8x slot...so i found this motherboard..

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16813130519

but i am wondering does the ram really need to be pc3200??? Cause i just purchased new pc2100 ram for my existing motherboard and if i dont use it it is a waste of money...thanks

Agp 8x vid cards are backward compatable with 4x agp vid card mobo slots and you will see very little if any difference running that 8x in a 4x slot. ps. that pc2700 should work but why buy the pc3200 ram mobo to get a 8x agp slot over a 4x slot and give the preformance back by running pc2700 ram and not pc3200 ram. You gain nothing that way.

Does it say that it runs at 100-120 with a 2.4GHz Pentium4, PC2100 RAM and 4x AGP?

You need a faster processor, better motherboard and faster RAM (PC3200).

If the extra stuff you've bought is all still new then think about returning it and investing in a more modern system with PCI-express video capability.
