Should i buy a new CPU? Or buy a new motherboard+..

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
here is my stats

the clock speed is 2.7Mhz


how can i find out what CPU i can upgrade to? Also i have 4 GIG of RAM with a GTX 260. i was thinking i could buy a new botherboard with a new CPU and Keep everything else? what is the most practical way to upgrade? All i want is a CPU running at 3.1 Ghz. 64 bit.


if you name a CPU please tell me if it is unlocked so i can overclock it. And how much faster it is compared to my CPU i have now.

That's what, $475 USD?
Why not buy both? Find an Am3 motherboard for $130ish and get a 1090T to go along with it for $230

your old ram(ddr2) will not work in a am3 mobo(ddr3)
you can easily get a good ram/cpu/mobo combo for under 300
