Yep I reckon Indiana is right personally I would slip in a 1155 board a nice little i3 and 8GB 1600 RAM - you wouldn't necessarily need the 1600 but it's handy. my Sandy is running 16GB 1600MHz RAM but it is throttled back anyhow to 1333.

The motherboard would be around (out here) $90 the CPU $135 and the RAM well 8GB G Skill 1600 $45 so for about $270 practically a new machine and some leeway. In the US more like $250 - $240.

My Ivy I just posted in rigs is running 1866 and truly it isn't much faster than 1333 until I start O/C the it might come in handy.

on Ebay you can find tons of socket 775 mobos for less than 50 euro. last time there were more than 2000 results for EU.

Since you can't simply walk up to a store and buy what we recommend, it's better to have a look at what is available in your price range, and choose the best of that (just google the name of the mobo with "REVIEW" after it to see if the overclocking features).

Hum Dorado like Bob says stacks on Ebay plus that duo one I quoted I am just a touch confused though what is the difference of using a 775 against a 1155 at a ?LAN party. Don't 775 boards play with 1155 ones - truly I don't understand

He mans that he plays games that that his rig can handle (with a new motherboard anyway), and doesn't see the reason to blow hundreds of $$$ in something he doesn't need and putting perfectly fine components in the trash.
