Upgrading the CPU and Mobo

hi,my rig is
AMD Athlon 64 3800
GA-M61SME-S2 (rev. 2.x)
2GB DDR2 Ram
EVGA 9600GT 512mb

i think the cpu is bottlenecking the system coz i only get arround 20-30 fps in call of duty 4 at 1024x768 with all options on..and sometime it drops to 12 -20 fps..:( :(

im thinking to buy intel motherboard and a processor

GA-G31M-S2L mobo with E5400 or E7400

going for E7400 will give high fps? or its better to get E5400 considering other parts i hv (2GB ram and 9600GT) ??

(im from Sri Lanka and here there are few AMD processors and mobo's and they are really expensive now)

  1. The E7400 will be faster than the E5400, and I suggest you get that if possible instead. The E7400 should work with the GIGABYTE GA-G31M-S2L motherboard, and your old DDR2 RAM as well.

    for E7400 (140$) i hv to spend around 60$ more than E5400 (80$),is it woth going for E7400 ? will it give a good performance increase for the price?
  3. If possible I'd get the Pentium E6500, if it's priced at around $100, otherwise go for the E7400.
