im trying to help a friend upgrade his system to be able to play cod - black ops.
it looks like we will need to upgrade his cpu from a single core 3700+ to something that will beat these minimum system requirements - * Processor:Intel® Core2 Duo E6600 or AMD Phenom X3 8750 or better.
what im looking to do is use all of his existing parts - evga 9600 gt superclocked, 4 gb corsair platinum 184 pinn ram, 700 thermal master psu, windows 7 64bit.
i need some advice on a motherboard + cpu combo that will work with the ram noted above. all the other parts should work with whatever we choose to go with.
looking to spend around $150.00 for cpu - motherboard combo.
