I am wondering about upgrading my computer to have a better motherboard and cpu, however I am not very good with computers. I am not really sure what motherboard/cpu to get, but I just need an up to date, not too expensive one that can cope with current games like Battlefield Bad Company 2 and Modern Warfare 2. I also don't know what types of cpu's and motherboards are compatible with one another, so for future reference, any input on there would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
My motherboard atm is an Asus P5LD2. My system isn't bad, it's just the requirements for bad company 2 says i need a better cpu. However since my motherboard is quite old I thought I would probably end up having to buy a new motherboard to be compatible with newer cpu.
