I recently rebuilt my girlfriends com pretty much ground up, now the issue I'm running into is that I used the original intell MoBo and processor (pentium dual core @ 3.2) when I look at the specs for the chipset (945GC)it tells me the fsb is 533mhz/800mhz . now the issue I'm running into is that my cpu is the bottleneck and a c2d runs at 1066 fsb. is there a way I can make this work or am I just in need of a new MoBo?
pentium dual core (3.2 ghz)
4 gigs ddr2 @ 800mhz
xfx radeon hd 4650 1 gig
western digital hd 320gig x2 (not in RAID)
ATX 450watt psu
in an Apevia x-cruiser2 case
this is the board, theoriginalcompwas a GT 5464 purchased frombest buy some time ago, asmentioned above prettty much everything has been upgraded already,includingthe cpu onetime already, I'm just not getting what I need from my processor (pentium d 3.2 ghz).
if its not possible to put a cc2d/c2q in here what would be the recomended fix?
comp is pretty much used for home theater with a bit ofonline gaming (neverwinter nights 2) nothing real extreme
