Hi,
I'd like to try and upgrade the computer I have at the moment.

These are the specifications of the motherboard that is installed in the computer,
http://www.intel.com/support/mothe [...] pkw=C28906

I guess it may seem marginal on getting a new computer, but the cheapest decent new laptop would be around £350 to £400. This computer is only going to be used for basic functions, and hopefully with this upgrade will make the computer last a long time regarding its purpose.

The RAM memory of the computer and graphics card have been upgraded to 4GB RAM and 512MB GPU.

PNY GEFORCE 8400GS PCI 512MB GRAPHICS CARD

4 GIGABYTE (4 X 1 GB) KINGSTON HYPERX DDR400 PC3200 NON ECC 184 PIN RAM

I want to make theses changes so it will be 64bit. What I have read explained that the motherboard and the CPU needed to changed to make this possible. I'd like to get a motherboard that is still compatible with the RAM, GPU and other components that are used by the current motherboard.

This is a link to Intel's lists for Motherboards and CPU's that would be compatible,

I only have a limited knowledge about computers, if anyone could advise which would be the best Intel motherboard and CPU to get.

Many thanks
Matthew
