  1. I'm sorry, but none of those processors you mentioned are compatible with the socket of your motherboard. If you want a faster processor compatible with your motherboard, try the Core 2 Quad (here's one from newegg.com: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115057)

    Currently, your computer should be able to support a lot of games, not all on high settings, but it's good. An upgrade to a Core 2 Quad, possibly a GTX 560 Ti or an HD 6950 shouldn't hurt at all as well (assuming you are getting that C2Q as well to prevent major bottlenecks)
  2. thank you so much...i almost bought the i-3 preocessor..so i need a core 2 quad...but that is a bit expensive for me...is there a cheaper way? .....and the item in the link has been deactivated.
  3. The cheapest boost for you is to go to 4Gb of ram, that will go with your new chip a treat :)

  4. i too have a conroe 1333 - d667 mobo. I have sparkle nvidia 9400 gt graphics card.
