  2. Mainly games but also i will use some programming softwares and photoshop. I need a fast mainboard
  3. umm, u really need a new whole computer, about 700-800, whats your budget?
  4. I guess no budget as long as it does the above things?
  5. no, i just need a mobo that will use my graphic card and processor with max speed. i m using graphic card at 4x but i know it can be used as 8x. i will use it before i get a laptop next january. and budget is 100 $
  6. ^Dude, just use what you have for now, not worth upgrading.
  7. i have to upgrade as i cant use newer version of visual basic. it is so slow on computer and i will have programming classes next month

  9. There is nothing you can do to "upgrade" that system that will result in any benefit what-so-ever. It is money in the trash.
    You can do a complete motherboard, processor, memory upgrade that will do what you need to do with horsepower to spare.
    Start with this
    It has excellent on-board video.
    Add this
    and this

    Use your current case, keyboard, drives, monitor, etc.

    For about $180, you have a system that will blow, and I mean blow away anything, for any amount of money you could upgrade on your current system. This is not by any stretch of the imagination a high end gaming rig, but it will suit your needs very well.
  10. thank you all but i think i didnt express my question well. i just need a motherboard that will suit things in computer and will make them run with their max speeds. yeah it is better idea to buy a new computer as u said, and i will, but there are at least 6 months for that and i want to use my old servant computer a bit faster
  11. I guess it's a socket 478. They do not sell those any more.
    You could try Ebay.
