Need to buy new CPU to buy new mobo? Tags: CPUs Product Last response: November 22, 2012 6:09 PM in CPUs Share Eri November 22, 2012 5:10:09 PM I currently have a desktop that I built years ago that I haven't used in a couple years because the motherboard died. This was the board. http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite... It runs 2 SLI'd GTX 260s. It is also a 775 socket board. I recently decided I wanted to resurrect this computer but finding a full ATX board that is 775 socket is pretty much impossible. Am I gonna have to buy another CPU to get this thing up and running? For reference, this is the CPU sitting there now: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite... Are there any issues that might crop up from using somewhat older stuff like the nvidia GTX 260s?

Can't give you an estimate for them. Here's some recommendations: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Microcenter may have the 3770 cpu for $230, but this weekend, alot of stuff will sell out. You can save about $100 with an amd quad core, but it won't be any better than your old cpu. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
