  1. Depends on what you want to get out of the upgrade. What else are you upgrading?

    you waste your money unless you where getting an overclock cpu. any new mb with the same cpu going to run just as fast as the old mb. if the mb and cpu are fine leave them alone. spend your money on a good case and power supply and a ssd.
