Hi I'm looking to upgrade my cpu to somthing that can handle more high performance games. Im trying to run games like Battlfield BC2, crysis, and the new Cod Black Ops at decent levels. I own crysis and BFBC2 and both run pretty horrible at the moment.(Cod Mw2 and L4d run fine though) If that helps. The problem is ive been searching the web on what cpu's that are compatible with my motherboard but havent gotten anywhere.
Heres what I have:
Intel pentium D E2200 2.20GHz
Windows Vista 64 bit
550 watt psu
Motherboard = Acer m5641,socket LGA775,Real clock 200MHz(QDR),Effective Clock 800Mhz
My questions I geuss are What category of cpu (either intel or Amd) are compatible for my motherboard?(can I run the new intel i5 or i7 series?) Is there anything else besides my mobo that I have to consider when upgrading my cpu? Also could my garphic card be the issue I was told by some friends it should be fine.
Any help at all would be appreaciated Thanks
