The 915 chipset on your gigabyte board is too old for any core2 duo cpus, so I would change boards to upgrade if you have the knowledge.

@o1die but wouldnt that cost to much if he is already running a older system wouldnt it be better to just get another computer all together and go from there??.

You could try and find Core 2 Duos/Quads around. I think those are the only ones you can upgrade to.

Cheers!

well I can't find a GA-8I915PMD only a p-d on their website, and that says it does not support dual core cpus, so basically you are out of luck. But check the model number again as I said I can't find a board with the name GA-8I915PMD

The GA-8I915PMD does not appear on the gigabyte web site today. The GA-8I915PMF does, and it supports duo's and quads, but not at clock rates much higher than what you have.

You can get an inexpensive sandy bridge duo , mobo, and ram for perhaps $300 that would run rings around your current system. Sell your old parts on e-bay to recoup some of the costs.

Sell your old rig, and put the money towards an AMD Phenom 2 system, which would be a massive leap in performance from your old system.
