    You and I are in the same boat. To upgrade from your current 478 cpu, you'll need to either find a 478 EE cpu or upgrade the Entire computer to support:

    Intel cpu sockets:
    LGA 755 (dieing socket)
    Lga 1156
    Lga 1366

    AMD cpu sockets:
    AM2 (dieing socket)
    AM2+
    AM3


    For a new computer, You want us to find the parts for a good computer for, then please mention:

    Budget
    Computer tasks you'll be doing (like gaming, CAD, web surfing, ect.)
    retail preference (like newegg or microcenter)
