its just their naming scheme, the cpu allows for 64bit computing yata yata. I dont think either of those boards are really meant for overclocking, and I also dont think you really need to over clock at all for this build. the CPUs out of the box should be just fine for what you need.

its 64 bit so it can be utilized by a 64 bit operating system and programs. If the processor wasn't 64 bit, then windows xp 64 bit (for example) wouldn't be able to run to its full potential, and take advantage of the architecture.

ok all is reasonable to change intel e5200 to amd... so i would do that...

last is ram... i think Buy Corsair XMS2 TWIN2X2048-6400C4 2GB 2X1GB PC2-6400 DDR2-800 CL 4-4-4-12 240PIN Dual Channel Memory is good deal... unless you can find better reasonable cheap 2gb... but can it run with amd?

Yeah it should be fine with the AMD build, that ram is an ok price if, its only 2 gbs so its pretty well comparable to the ram I linked to you although the stuff I linked is a bit cheaper per gb.

i wont install xp pro 64 bit on the computer because i dont want to see some problems with old (2004) cctv cards...

4gb is not reasonable... 2 gb to 3 gb is reasonable...

Looks good man, the x2 5200 is a great CPU Ive had one and it handled pretty well at stock speeds and should be more then enough for the build. Theres gotta be somewhere in langley that sells decent plain cases for around $30. I know CMO computers up here sells a few that arent bad.
