Intel® Desktop Board D945GNT — Supported processors

And there is nothing in any of the BIOS release notes that mention adding core2 support. Basically there is a strong chance that newer 775 socket CPU's may not work. It's a dead end upgrade wise.

What's a Q9xxx CPU?
And if I wanted to change to i3/i5/i7, I need a new motherboard?

Yes you will need a new system to use i3/i5/i7
Got it mate.
So if I wanted to change to a processor, (currently I have NVIDIA GeForce 9500GT)
What processor you suggest me to change to for basic gaming?

Basically you will need to buy another mobo since your current one does not suppport newer LGA775 processors for gaming

Better to buy a new one so that we can save some money or by upgrading is more cheap?

Buy a new modern system since your mobo will not ever support fast CPUs

Hello guys, I heard that the Intel I5 2500k has the same speed as Intel I7 2600k...
So if I want to save some money, I should just change to I5?

Depends what you plan on doing.

The i7 is a bit faster, but not by a large margin.

Heres a nice In depth review of both to help you decide if the i7 is worth the extra cost over the i5 to you.

I suggest you go with AMD, you can get better bang for your buck compared to the 2500K and 2600K. Here are three processors you should choose, these are the top end AMD processors available.

Newegg.com - AMD Phenom II X6 1100T Black Edition Thuban 3.3GHz, 3.7GHz Turbo 6 x 512KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache Socket AM3 125W Six-Core Desktop Processor HDE00ZFBGRBOX
Newegg.com - AMD Phenom II X6 1090T Black Edition Thuban 3.2GHz 6 x 512KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache Socket AM3 125W Six-Core Desktop Processor HDT90ZFBGRBOX
Newegg.com - AMD Phenom II X4 975 Black Edition Deneb 3.6GHz 4 x 512KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache Socket AM3 125W Quad-Core Desktop Processor HDZ975FBGMBOX

Or wait a few months for the new AMD architecture which is way better.

Use the extra $100 dollar you save (if you were gonna buy the 2600K), on a better GPU.
