Hello,

I have an old computer and I am wondering if i could get a better processor for a good price. At the moment I have a Intel Celeron D 775 LGA socket processor, but it is very slow. I have an AS8 / AS8-V (Intel i865-ICH5) mainboard . Could anyone help me plz?

The thing is they are very expensive. You could pay $200 for a Q9555.

For that much you could buy a Core i3/H61 mobo/8GB DDR3.

That motherboard is trash now with those LGA 775 CPU haven't price drop yet... A Q9550 is still F-ing $300, WTH? lol... I always wonder why it's still $300 because it should be $150 at least...

Which CPU are you using? & whats your budget for the new CPU?
Would you consider buying a Cheap/decent 1155 Mobo & a Core i3?

i've just sold my Q9550 for £110 on ebay. so the question might not be whats the best you can get, as the best would be 2-3x more expensive than the next best, and only be 5% better, but should be i can afford X what the best I can get?

Based on the link provided by mcnumpty23, the motherboard only supports up to the Prescott family of Pentium 4 CPUs. That means no Core 2 Dual or Quad CPU will be recognized by the BIOS.
