I am an avid computer gamer and my 4 year old computer is starting to barely meet the minimum requirements of games coming out nowadays. (Only so much of counter-strike I can take , I'd like some eye candy haha!) I would like to determine if upgrading my processor and possibly mother board will get me to a point where I don't need to buy a whole new computer. Current Specs: Processor- Intel Core 2 Duo E6400 @ 2.13 Ghz (Codename Conroe) Socket 775 LGA FSB 1066 Bus Speed 266.4 MHz (Got this info from CPU-Z, if more info about processor is needed, I can give it) Motherboard- Intel DP965LT Chipset is P965/G965 BIOS date is 07/16/06 I went to the intel website and tried to find a compatible processor for this motherboard that would put me at least over 3 Ghz, but it seems the best I could find is the "Intel® Core™2 Extreme Processor X6800" which is 2.93 Ghz. I'm not sure that increasing to under 3 Ghz is even worth the effort. So, I was hoping I could get some help with regards to finding out what is the best processor this motherboard can handle. If the best is a mere 2.93 Ghz, some advice as to which new motherboard and processor combo to buy would be greatly appreciated. If I left out any information that is needed, please let me know, I will get it to you ASAP. Thanks in advance for the time and help!
