what kind of processor would i be better off with? where i could play cs (counter strike)

That motherboard is not going to cut it considering its 2X older than counter strike its self.

A: The system requirements for counter-strike was written three years ago, during that time many changes and additions to counter-strike which have made the requirements much higher. I recommend at least a pentium 2 500MHz with at least 256MB RAM and a 32MB video card.

# System requirements:Pentium 133 MHz
# Windows 95, 98, NT, 2000, or Me
# 24 MB RAM
# 400 MB hard disc space
# 2x CD-ROM
# SVGA, high-color (16-bit) graphics
# Win-compatible soundcard
# 32-bit Internet service provider with 28.8+ modem or LAN

Recommended Requirements:
# Intel Pentium II 233 or AMD K6-2
# 48MB of RAM
# 3D Accelerator card, Open GL or Direct3D

Not to harp, but there was never a 500MHz PII. PIII (Katmai), sure, but PII's only ramped up to 450MHz.

Oh my God should I go in and edit the II to a III
what should I do,what should I do(Dramatic)

You don't need 256MB of any memory to play CS efficiently.
Nor a PIII, whatever speed.
A Voodoo3 PCI would handle the amazing graphics that CS produces. :rolleyes:
