I would like to get a new mobo and cpu without replacing much, such as my ram.

Here are the specs to the pre-build gateway

http://support.gateway.com/s/PC/DX42...5576Rcl2.shtml


Everything is the same other than the GPU and PSU.

I was thinking of getthing one of these mobos

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813128455

and one of these cpu

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103912




Also how exactly would i know if my ram is compatible with the mobos?

Im also aware that my windows OS might not work with the new mobos as well that they might not work with gateways case.

I am trying to keep the cost at about 200 and have a cpu that is just about right for my new GTX 460 (768mb version)



Thanks
I know you want to get out of this difficulty as simply as possible but you really need to start over beginning with a new case and PSU. Just buy one or two pieces at a time as you can afford and your problem will be solved. Sell the Gateway on Craig's List or eBay and be rid of it.

I know what you mean and i will eventually buy a new pc, but just wanted something to last me a few more months, maybe a little less than a year.

I mean even now, its perfect and it can play any game i want. I just wanted a cpu to be a little more on the lv of the gpu.
