YoYo, What do you mean don't spend more on this platform? I was hoping I could get replacements for the motherboard and cpu and put that in my existing case with ssd/psu/optical drives/etc components.

I am thinking about an i7 but haven't pinned down a motherboard yet mostly because I don't know how much I should spend (is a $350 mobo that much better than a $150 one?)
That is exactly it, when I said the platform I meant the motherboard, everything forms to it eventually.
You can get a lot of "leftover" Ive-bridge core i(3-5-7) 3xxx CPU+Motherboard combo for really cheap, depending on where you live of course.
Why do you need an i7 for? What is you usage case?
350$ for a motherboard is a lot IMHO.

Win7 Home Premium 64bit 6.1.7601 Service Pack 1

I live in the US (northwest) and mostly am looking on newegg or other dealer sites for components...probably gonna have to wait for a sale or promotion.

I want an i7 because I want something that will last me for a while. This last setup is from 2009 so it had a solid 4 years of just working. I'd rather invest in a quality motherboard and a latest-gen processor and then not have to upgrade for another 4 years.

Intel has a good reputation for quality and my current build is using an AMD cpu so I figured I'd try both so I have first-hand knowledge for future builds. I don't have anything against AMD as this current system has been great for years.

I guess it's fine to mark this solved. Thank you all for your help in attempting to diagnose this problem. I learned a ton and that's really what's most important, anyway.

If anyone has any suggestions for builds or motherboards let me know.

Thanks again everyone
