This mobo uses a lga 775 socket, which is "dead" and would appreciate any replies regarding this topic.

  1. What's your budget for upgrading? Without one, we can't really do much.
  2. Which games do you anticipate playing? Your only upgrade options on that motherboard is a Quad at 3GHz which you will find tough to locate.

    A Q9650 is 3GHz but is still listed at about £200-£300 most places

    For that price you can get a MB, CPU and new RAM that will perform better I believe. I'm building an AMD A8 computer for under £250
