I will find a way to test the old cpu but right now ill just focus on rebuilding the system from LGA775 to LGA1150
I feel bummed if i could have just ordered a used Intel E6550 CPU for 30 bucks and been back playing DayZ already
thanks again guys for all the advice
No problem, and don't bother about sending about the parts, if you send back working items your liable to pay for restocking fees.
Besides that the new machine will be more better.
Sofware I recommend while gaming.
Eset Nod32 7 39.95 yearly.
Zone Alarm free edition. pm if you need basic setup help.
Open office, good on resources and microsoft documents.
System mechanic 12 basic, should cost less than 20.00 on ebay.
CPU-Z for monitoring system temp and info about your system.
Winrar current version make sure you go to their official site and not some knock off winrar.com crap.
Power iso for opening up iso or making direct burn from iso to cd/dvd. 8 years of use and still better than nero crap.
There are more I can't think of but av will keep you guarded well.
