I think you had better upgrade it....... :) 
Then you could do tons of stuff with the new Mobo, CPU and GPU... just make sure it's an upgrade and not something parallel to this.....
I only hope the upgrade is not going to be done by HP :)  or again, you'll be asking the same question with the upgrade very soon.

Your motherboard is based on the now replaced socket 775 form factor - which limited your upgrades considerably for the CPU - they list a small selection of discontinued CPU's that were not really very good when they launched.

What do you inted using your PC for? adding a PCI-E graphics card is possible providing you dont aim to high with the model used.

I would look to replace the mobo & cpu - at the moment the LGA1156 chips are going down in price due to the recent LGA1155 launch. An i3 5** CPU and compatible motherboard / ram bundle can be had quiete cheaply in the UK making the upgrade path quite painless. The i3 5** chips (530 / 540) have integrated video also so you wont need to buy a video card right away.

So I got this bundle from Tiger Direct and just curious is that better or should I stayed with the same mobo and cpu? Can I overclock if I ever get the balls to do it :sweat:  :sweat:  . I really hope its compatible with my hardware because I was looking and I felt confident. Worst case scenario I'm building a new pc from scratch :lol:

Let me know what you think of the Bundle I got? Do you think it might work on my old PC?
