The socket you have is 775. The i3 is on socket 1156 so the i3 wont work for you unless your going to do a ram change and mobo but I dont think thats an option. The core 2 duo is a great gaming chip. You just have to see if your mobo can support the core 2 duo. If it can then that would give you more performance out of your 5770.
Thanks for your input. I was thinking about actually keeping my current core 2 duo that came with my Dell. I was doing some research and I read that my chip can easily be OC'ed to 3.0 ghz
Only problem is my BIOS are locked so I will need to get a new motherboard. Below are a case and motherboard and I was wondering if they would work :
Antec Three Hundred Black Steel - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811129042
ASUS P5N-D LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 750i SLI ATX Intel Motherboard - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131232
All input is very much appreciated. I just started getting into this stuff and I've just been doing non stop reading. I am excited so thanks in advance.
