I need to upgrade my Motherboard and CPU only. I want to use my existing case, RAM, video card and HD. Im looking at purchas

I have an ASUS M2N http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/M2N/specifications/
I have 4 GB of DDR2 I believe
I have a NVidia Geforce GT 610 video card.
I have an AMD Athlon 64 X 2 Duel Core Processor 4200+
All I want to do is upgrade my processor and my Motherboard. Im looking at Newegg.com to purchase but its been so long I feel out of touch and that I lack the knowledge anymore lol. Can anyone help with suggestions for upgrades? I want to spend as little as I can. Thank you.

  1. How much you got spend?

    I would suspect you will also need to upgrade memory to DDR3.

    If your not a a hard core gamer, then an AMD AM1 based system will be a good choice and also provide a far superior video card.
  2. I play WoW and my system as is actually handles it NP. Very rare I get lag. This is a system I put together in 2006. The vid card is newer. Id like to try and keep the RAM I have n just upgrade the MB and CPU to go along with what I have already. Around $100-150. is what id like to spend.
  3. your ram is DDR2 ... most new mother board use DDR3.... ram need upgrade
    video card need upgrade too

    microcenter have an upgrade mb/cpu combo for $99 ... most anything will be better than your setup ...
    but what your PSU ?? that importance also

    so with budget 150

    mb/cpu = 99 Microcenter
    ram 8 gig = 50-70

    i would get by with that for now .. upgrade your video card latter

    but the cost of cpu coooler be $30 too

    i look at more like minimum of $200 include tax.
