Can this motherboard hold Intel core 2 Duo Or Intel Core i5 ??
What is best for games ana performance Intel Core 2 Duo Or Core 2 quad ??????
And i f i need to upgrade my Motherboard what i must buy?? And video card ??
Hi mate , no sorry you can't use DDR3 RAM using that motherboard. It only accepts DDR2. Also you can use any graphics card you want but the card performance will be held back if you use a wrong lane & old DDR2 RAM. Also that motherboard can't support Intel Core 2 Duo or an i5. Best for games would be a fast Core 2 Quad processor. Also if you want a new motherboard & videocard. You'd have to buy new ram & new cpu. So best advice is build a new system in whole otherwise wont be worth it.
At this point though do you really feel that its a good idea to upgrade a socket 775 chip. I don't think so if you were to upgrade your cpu I would jump up to 1155 775 is older then dirt at this point.
Just because a processor has a high clock speed doesn't make it good. Back when I first started building computers AMD had processors like the AMD ATHLON 64 3700+ and the clock speed was low but it beat the snot out of Pentium 4's at the time well the socket 939 did at the time. Point is he is after a better gaming performance. If he sticks with a 775 platform he will then have a continued bottleneck from his CPU. Even if he were to overclock he would need some serious cooler to push enough into that CPU to make it worth a darn.
