I'm not very good with computers, but I kind of get it. I have a PC I want to upgrade. Specifically just the motherboard and processor. I'm looking to use this PC just for editing on Sony Vegas and that only. I have a laptop that does everything else for me. At the moment my processor speed is 1.6ghz and it's lags horribly on Sony Vegas so I hoping to upgrade to a 3.0ghz. Will that be good enough for Sony vegas? I also am upgrading the ram to 8gb. My question is..

This is the computer that I have

and I was hoping to upgrade to this

I'm having trouble determining if the motherboard would even fit.
Hopefully, I gave enough information. If I need to provide more, please let me know.

And if it does fit.. Will I need to buy a new OS cd? I don't currently have one for it.

OR do I even need to upgrade the mobo? Can I just upgrade the processor? If so, does anybody have any recommendations?

  1. You will need to upgrade both the processor and the CPU, BUUUT it won't fit in your current chassis.

    What is your budget?
  2. The most affordable for what I need it to do
    i would also pick up an 8g ddr3 match 1600 speed kit for the new system. i would use the old drive and cd-rom if there sata for the new system. some system have the restore cd info on a hidden partion of the hard drive. you may have a program that make the disks for you but you need a set of blank dvd disks. if not if your in school you can buy windows from the ms edu program at a discount or buy an oem windows 7 from ebay or new egg.
  4. Can anybody give me some recommended items that I need? I have already bought some 2x4gb g.skills from newegg. As for the mobo, I need help choosing and whatever else I may need to get my computer up and running. I may have to buy Windows because I highly doubt it would work, I read somewhere that once it is installed, it is attached to the mobo.
