  1. I would like to buy a new CPU.

    I have two options in mind:

    Buy the best one that is compatible with my mother board...

    Or buy a new mother board and CPU that dose not require me to replace the graphics card or ram sticks. Or anything else for that matter. (psu is an exception, they are not incredibly expensive... right?)

    I was thinking of getting the "Q9550" but im not sure it's compatible...

    What cpu would you suggest i buy? I currently have:
