the problem is i still use an intel core 2 duo E8400 3.0 gHz with a gigabyte EP43-DS3L board.
that means whichever CPU i upgrade to, i'll need to get a new motherboard alongside with it. and new DDR3 ram too.
i was hoping to find a nice dualcore or quadcore for under $150. which CPU and MoBo do you think is best suited?
