Intel PENTIUM E6300 + Asus P5KPL-CM

p.s. All the C2D CPU released in late 2009 are named as Pentium E6xxx which is MUCH better than C2D E6xxx

It cost too much la, Psycho. Not everyone are as rich as you.

@OP:
Do what Psycho said if you want to do a complete upgrade.

I like the E6300, matched it up a couple of times with the P5QPL-AM, but I swear each time my E6850 was laughing in the backround.

^Agreed. Imo, LGA775 is dead and an upgrade is questionable/pointless for that platform.

Quad CPU on a 775 motherboard is what I would go for if I am looking into not spending much money.
Not everyone here has money pockets here and that is what some of you have to understand.

Some people just can't upgrade to a i5 or i7 like that.
I hate when people answer these topics and clearly they are not thinking about helping the next person but
thinking about themselves and their computer base on what they have. Just because you have a i7 or i5 system doesn't mean
that I should get what you have base on what you know about what the New CPU can do.

Just think about the person what their needs are. Some of us are not rich and have rich parents.
Some have jobs, rent and bills to pay. Don't forget children..

Not everyone could effort have i7 amd i5 systems.
That means New Mobo, New Ram if needed, and new CPU.

Maybe you should keep your legs closed till you can afford to splurge on whatever you want even if you have kids. :lol:  I put together a whole new system for under 500 dollars. If you can't afford 500 dollars then you DEF shouldn't be having any kids.


Going to get flamed for that comment in 5..4..3..2..1...


But you forgot something very important.... That is Bills and Rent
Oh you are too fast to open your mouth about children and I don't think a woman
would be happy with what you said about keep their legs closed. If that's the case then
you wouldn't be here right now....Some of us don't live with mommy and daddy..

You have to look out for the man or woman next to you and think about what and how much they can effort.
So please think before answering

I don't care if the product is Intel or AMD I'm very happy with what I have now and happy to be part of a community of
online gamers and computer tech specialist. Good to help those in need when they need it. Make you happy and be a better person

I love computer since I was a teenager and them first build system is a AMD (1997) and I took that same processor and made it into a key chain.
