Is it worth it or not, I don't know you didn't say how much. My point is for $150 you could get a new Sandy Bridge cpu a new mobo and 8GB of DDR3. m 0 l Related resources Looking to go SLI on an existing build, need help - Forum Need help with hsf fit onto mono - Forum I'm trying to biuld a pc and i need some help - Forum Need help with new RAM - Forum Need help in PC compatible parts. - Forum Can't find your answer ?

If you're going on the internet and paying more than that for a 775 socket it's time to move on. You can get into a sandy/ivy bridge computer for a lot less than upgrading. Not to mention that an i3 2100 is still probably snappier than 775 socket quad. You have to realize that 775 is old. 2011-1155-1156-1366-775 That's 3 generations of CPU's. TLDR: Start a fresh build and save yourself the hastle with compatibility, using DDR2, and no Sata 3 for SSD upgrades. m 0 l geekapproved June 24, 2012 2:56:48 PM I was talking about a Pentium G for that $150 but it's still faster in gaming than the X4's. m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
