Upgrading Cpu/Mobo

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.

  2. What kind of motherboard and PSU do you have now?
  3. Best answer
    a cheap gigabyte mobo and an athlon II 620 can be had for less than 200 bucks (someone actually linked a bundle deal a second ago, but i forgot to bookmark it..)

    but that upgrade should help out alot, especially in BC2 which really likes multi-core systems.
  4. you haven't got a bad system, what do you want to achieve by upgrading?
  5. 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.
