Re: N00b Processor/Grpahics Card Question

I think you should probably (disclaimer here) be able to replace your current motherboard with a newer Socket 775 one and reuse your CPU (maybe RAM too), but as with replacing the CPU, you won't notice much of a difference.

Peripherals like displays, CD/DVD drives, hard disks can each be upgraded independently from all other parts without too many issues. However, as I said before, the core of the computer (mobo, cpu, ram, often psu and gfx as well) should always be replaced together, both for compatibility reasons and cost effectiveness.

So he gave them the coy little wave and realized it probably would have been more effective if he hadn't been lying on their turkey.
