Please help me to upgrade

I am going to buy the Gigabyte H55M-USB3, and the problem is then I have to get a new CPU and now I am not sure what to but. I can afford an core i3 3.06 GHz, does anyone has a better idea or is that the best for that price range.

That MB supports ddr3 ram. No your ddr2 will not work. Is the i3 all you can afford? What is the price rang you are looking at? The i7 or i5 would be better but you can always upgrade in the future.

I can buy a i7 in 3 weeks do you think it is better to wait then? And must I buy that motherboard is it sufficient for the i7? And also that MB can take a lot of ram sorts witch it the best to use DDR3 2200/1800/1600/1300/1066/800 MHz DDR3-1600 : Sybaritic - South African Online Computer Store check out that website and tell me what would work out the best for the cheapest. I can always upgrade the RAM after a while

I havent looked at the store, but I have an i3. If you can get an i7 in three weeks, by all means wait. I need to see what choices you have about the motherboard. But, Can you buy from the US? I don't know about taxes and customs overseas but I would think you could get much more for your money in the US. Just my opinion, I will be happy to give you my advice as long as you take it as that - just my advice. But, if 3 weeks makes the difference between an 13 and an i7, I wouldnt even consider the i3- its a 2 core just like the one you have now, it is just able to fool the OS into thinking it is a 4 core. But, in the end, it is still a 2 core and will only do as much as a 2 core. The i7 is the top of the line processor right now. Wait the 3 weeks. Thats my advice.

What''s the tops you could spend on a chip, board and ram. If you tell us that we can work out best bang for buck on Sybaritic's site
