    CPU halp

    yea, i made thread like this a while ago, but i didn't get much input so making a new one

    i have a ASUS CM5570 motherboard running on a Intel G43 (Eaglelake-G) + ICH10 Consumer chipset. Right now i have an Intel Pentium Dual Core E5300 processor.

    I was just wondering what would be the best processor i could upgrade to on this mobo. im not good with compatibility stuff so also could use so help there thanks people.

    graphics card compatibly would also be nice

    Why do you think anyone here could help you let alone understand wtf you just said o_O?

    "Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children. The cost of one modern heavy bomber is this: a modern brick school in more than 30 cities. It is two electric power plants, each serving a town of 60,000 population. It is two fine, fully equipped hospitals. It is some fifty miles of concrete pavement. We pay for a single fighter plane with a half million bushels of wheat. We pay for a single destroyer with new homes that could have housed more than 8,000 people. This is, I repeat, the best way of life to be found on the road the world has been taking. This is not a way of life at all, in any true sense. Under the cloud of threatening war, it is humanity hanging from a cross of iron."
    - Dwight D. Eisenhower

    As long as you have a PCIe port you should be able to support any graphics card, just make sure your psu has enough 12v rails and wattage to power everything at load.

    Since your computer is pretty vanilla from the store, i would go towards the cautious side and get at least a 650 watt psu.
