I'm new here and this is my first post. I look forward to staying on these forums.
Anyway, I would like to see your suggestions on how I can upgrade Motherboard (and probably my CPU) but also keep the rest of my system. I would normally do this myself but since my PC has some fairly old parts (3-5 years) and some brand new parts in it, I am questioning the compatibility.
I would be spending about $150
and under the Motherboard. The CPU is optional (i have a functional CPU but i would appreciate an upgrade). Price range for the CPU is $150
(give or take 10 or so dollars). In total I have have 400 bucks
to spend but I would only like to spend 300 or so. If you find a really good deal, I am willing to spend all of the 400, but that is only if you find: quiet, powerful, and compatible parts.
My SystemPLEASE REPLACE THE CPU AND MOTHERBOARD WITH YOUR SUGGESTIONS

I did some more searching and I found this on Newegg.
