You may want to buy a stand-alone controller for the new hard drive.

So it'* time for a new Motherboard? I'm pretty sure I can do the physical installation, but i have no idea where i would get on or what I would look for. Also, Would now be a good time for a new processor?

My opinion is to go with a decent Asus Intel board. You can get last years P4 processors for not much more than AMD'* and you will never have hardware compatibility problems.
