A C2Q is also more expensive. And yes it's obviously a minor increase rolleyes.gif From what I've gathered every dollar pound counts, so that's hardly spending money wisely. Later on if he'd like he could upgrade to a quad core Sandy Bridge and notice very large performance gains, and even at stock clocks a C2Q wouldn't be able to touch it. So why spend $190 in a used C2Q when you could get a brand new Core i5 for the same amount of money?

It's not that expensive in the UK:

Okay it's a tiny bit more expensive tongue.gif

Just get a cheap 775 board to tide yourself over, have a look on eBay and the such. You can even get the lower end 775 boards for £30~ from various retailers.

Then, when you have the money to put into it and make a good go of it, upgrade. smile.gif

Also, X58 (Core i7 9xx) is still a very powerful platform, and can be had quite cheaply used.

A friend of mine just got an Skt 775 ASUS Rampage motherboard for around £100, barely used.

There are some good 775 bargains to be had.

Long live 775! biggrin.gif

Replace the board with a second hand Gigabyte EP45 series board. Then wait until you have enough money again to do a complete rebuild.
