Thank you Malmental for correcting me, I truly and honestly mean that. I would never want to steer anyone in the wrong direction. Seems I have fallen victim to my own poor research and lack of knowlege. Please forgive me NathanC, I did not mean to give you bad advice, and Malmental, you must have a wealth of knowlege floating around in your noggin, nice work.
so if you want more than that (higher dual core) I stated above than yes, you will need a new motherboard and processor.
let me know if you want to keep that case and i can recommend a motherboard for you that fits your request.
Cheers malmental and yes could you please recomend a motherboard
OK, now where do you want to go, Intel or stay AMD.?
It's apparent that you want to run a quad core cpu, is a triple core out of the question if AMD and then possibly unlock it to a quad with the right motherboard or straight quad or possibly a six-core.?
something to think about.
and are you going keep your Dell case correct.?
Think il stay AMD. Already bought the processor so just need a motherboard that will run it. Ye il keep the case.
not really, it will work but i do not like some things about the board.
hold on, i'm on a toke break...
I need to know some things: ddr3 or ddr2 RAM and up to what amount, possible dual video cards or staying with one.?
keeping the Dell power supply or trying to keep it anyways.?
sorry but I can be kinda thorough.
ddr2 as long as its more than 4GB. More than 1 would be good. Ye but il get a new one if i need to.
