So My current build is pretty old and is as follows:
inteldual core 2.6 Ghz CPU
Some motherboard that is extremely outdated(i know for a fact that no current CPU can go into it)
GTX 650 TI GPU
I want to slowly start upgrading everything except my GPU. I want to start with my CPU/MOBO as it will be the most exspensive. the only problem is that im on a budget and what i post later is about all i can afford. i want to know which of the CPU's would be better to get and if this MOBO is okay. Im worried the MOBO might not be okay because it is so cheap? So heres my options:
These brands of ddr3 desktop 240 pin cl9 ram will work; I recommend 1.5v 9-9-9-24 for the timings. Corsair, crucial, kingston, samsung, pny, patriot, and gskill are usually good brands. Do not try installing ddr2 in a ddr3 motherboard; you'll ruin the ram slot.
