I'm looking at upgrading an old PC.

Current specs:

Processor: AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 3800+ Video card: GeForce 7900 GS

The mother board model is: AV8 (VIA K8T800P-8237)

I'm just new to this game and I don't know where to look to buy the stuff that I know will fit to this motherboard.

Can anybody help me?

Really need to know the motherboard as the info you have given is not actually the model.

Use this SIW the home edition is fine. Install then click on motherboard on the left hand side.
