I want to upgrade mobo, cpu and ram. I need alot of help as I dont know all new stuff - Page 3

Just a point about the 965BE....it's a close match for the single thread speed of the e8400, not much to exceed it depending on how you overclock the e8400.

The i5-750 will outpace that result.

lol so let me understand what you said...forgive my noobness.. so you saying the i5-750 would exceed the e8400 single core speed?
yeah yeah...

Yes, by quite a margin.....

The 965BE would be nearly the same, but the i5-750 is about 40% or so faster in integer performance per core at stock.

On the other hand, the i5-750's floating point power is actually lower per core (or nearly the same), but that's likely offloaded to your GPU anyway.

Your motherboard is good, I say just find a Q9550 and be done with it.

Please make sure that w/e cpu you recommend beats the core duo e8400 in single core apps. Otherwise I dont want it.
for that budget and for what you want: better performance than your e8400 (hard to beat on single core apps) you will want a i5-750.

rams all all the same for you: you will NOT notice any difference in your computing/gaming, unless you are a benchmarking guy....

mobo... just pick one that has the stuff you want, sicne for i5's the only chipset is the P55.
options are... usb 3.0.. sata 3... trifire/tri slit, dual fire/ dual sli (no p55 mobo can run these are more than 8x8, but this won't afect your computing/gaming), features for extreme oc (don't think you will be using this.. most can push a i5-750 to at least 3,8... many to 4.0, even 4.2)

you didnt mention cooling...
if you will NEED to buy a new cooler because your's don't support 1156 socket, I would recommend an EVGA p55 FTW mobo, because LGA775 coolers will fit on it

good luck

The Q9950 might not be much of an upgrade unless it overclocks much better.

At stock speeds the 9950 is not quite a match for the e8400's single thread performance.

Yes, as a quad it has more juice, but in single thread it's a little weaker at stock (it's about the same IPC, so it depends on the overclock).

Floating point of the Q9950 is a tad lower or nearly the same as the e8400

Thanks. It's the same mobo that I have in my sig rig. So far it's great. the oc was really easy to figure out. especially with this being my first oc.

don't do this.
you will not really see any difference, since your e8400 can always be overclocked to 4,5 (if it's an E0)
and there will be almost no difference to the best clocked q9550.....

also, there are very few games out there that will take full advantage of 4 cores (for now)

I mean... a q9550 would be better, BUT it would be A LOT of money for a little improvement..

and again.. who knows that the cause of your problems (the crashings you mentioned) are from the CPU? not the mobo or your rams?

so many people posting junk in this thread...

kitt3, try to read carefuly each information, and think for your self if it's crap or not...

people these days just want to talk, and talk... with no scientic bases...

this is sad, because the quality of the forum is the loose in this story (and maybe you, if you just do as ANYBODY says)

Yeah, people are just trying to get the first response and get +Rep. Seeing as you actually know what you are talking about, what do you think of VW_TDI_02's suggestion from page 2:
It seems to fit all the criteria specified by kitt3.
