Thank you for your reply.
I guess its time for a new Mobo, My current Mobo has a 939 socket, That leaves me very limited with cpu upgrade............Is this correct?

The phenom II will not connect into this socket, Is my understanding correct?

I built this Pc 4 yrs ago, my first attempt at a build, It was handling my iRacing sim app, well up until their last software upgrade, Now when in the sim, i get choppy grapics, sort of lagging, and in my readings on the help forms there, I see alot of suggestion's on people upgrading to quad core, running dual VC cards and so on, Seems they may have made their simulation not so middle of the road gamer freindly.........lol
Rightfully so, Software is alwys being updated in the PC gaming Ind.

Is my understanding on my pc correct?

Thank you.
