Suggestions for Upgrading

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
As the title states I would like to get your suggestions on upgrading my current rig. First let me state that my current rig has been perfect for my needs and doesn't need anything new, it's just my parents asked me to build them a computer "like mine". I figured I could donate the cpu, MB, and memory from my system, maybe even the gpu. My system is a little over 2 years old, was the last of the 939 breed, but it has been a great rig. Never been OC'ed either. Anyways, I'd like to keep this build under $400 u.s. I plan to keep the remainder of my rig as it works flawlessly. I do not care which brand you suggest as I'd be having to replace the board anyways. I do nothing more than game and surf the web with my rig. No photo or video editing, or anything like that. Don't really care for quad cores at this point as I will not probably need it for the next 4-5 years at which point I will do this all over again. Thanks in advance for your suggestions.

Thanks Dar T for the reply, that is what I had figured most were going to come back with was the E8500. With you mentioning the E7300 I might go that route and bump the board up to the UD3P

Anyone else got anything different to add?
