Did you build it yourself or did you buy it from a manufacturer?

If you have some cash to blow, i would really look into a new motherboard. Something like 1155, and grabbing an i5 2500k. Socket 775 is REALLY old. I did a quick search on newegg, and took a little look at websites that came up on google, and i didn't come up with any new cpus that you could upgrade too (they were all refurbished, something I am against when it comes to pc hardware).

I'd buy a i3/i5, a Z77 motherboard, 4-8GB 1866 RAM, a 660ti GPU and around a 450W PSU to power that beast
