Well, I want to upgrade from my crappy old Pentium processor so it doesn't bottleneck my graphics card if I get a new one. I have a FOXCONN 2A8C motherboard.
I was wondering if it supported processor replacement?
And, at that, it would be appreciated if someone would suggest a decent quad-core for a moderate price.
Well, that's a kick to the balls.
Thanks for the feedback anyways. I got this pre-built for Christmas, and I'm not allowed to sell it.
And geekapproved, by cpu, do you mean motherboard? Or a whole new computer?
Ok well when you said old Pentium I thought you meant Pentium 4, which pentium processor do you have?
Keep in mind, not all s775 cpu's fit in all s775 motherboards. A lot of motherboards don't work with the 45nm cpu's.
The board you have is a oem board, not a board you can buy off the shelf, so there's no way we can tell you which cpu's work with it. That's the problem with buying pre-builts, most of the time they are throw away computers.
