Ok so earlier in the month i asked if my Mobo would support a E6800 it did not... :(  but when i did some digging on my processor i found that it FSB speed was slower than the new one (also suck) looking into overclocking FSB on mob didn't find anything so now im at a crossroads and these are my new choices for the upgrade
E3400 $49.99 @ Newegg
E5800 $76.99 @ Newegg
E5500 $77.99 @ newegg
I am not plaing on OCing mobo has very limited options and the reason why i haven't upgraded yet is because im 16 and unemployed so i need something to hold me over until i get a job SOOOOO quick replys??

It's not worth spending money now on stuff that is so old. If your motherboard's FSB doesn't even support a 1333MHz CPU, you're literally only wasting money in buying something old now. Save the money and spare yourself a lot of disappointment later on.

If you must upgrade, pick the cpu with the absolutely highest multiplier.
E3400- 13
E5500- 14
E5800- 16
The E5800 might not be too bad at 3.2GHz.
