  1. That's an Intel platform so you can count the AMD option(s) out of it.. As for the CPU support list for the motherboard, take a look at the provided link -

    http://www.cpu-upgrade.com/mb-MSI/G31M_(MS-7379).html
  2. Are you interested in CPU and motherboard or just a CPU upgrade? http://www.msi.com/index.php?func=prodcpu2&prod_no=1293&maincat_no=1#menu
    The Q9400 is on the list of supported CPU's
  3. i am looking for the upgrades with the cpu price (the needed upgrades)
    and after the calculation witch is the wothwhiler?
  4. You won't need any extra components if you decide to go for either of the E8400 or the Q9400.. Pricing wise, going for the Q9400 makes more sense IMO.. Check up on google for current pricing..
  5. Go for the Q9400 and another 2GB of Ram. That would be giving that computer a new lease on life.
