Windows 7: Windows 7 Ultimate 64 Bit Motherboard and CPU Upgrade

You could of course OC your current CPU. But you can do the same with the E6300. I am not an OC specialist. Maybe you want to start a new thread in the H/W forum and ask the guys about the options.
Regarding a board and a CPU - it is not difficult to find those. The sky is the limit. But for the budget you defined you will not get much (whereby I do not know the UK prices but I assume they are higher than in the US).

However i could raise slightly if the specifications of the CPU and motherboard would give me intensive results. I would dearly appreciate your comments, and i would love help you as well if it's in my knowledge. Thank you for the support.

My current Specifications are;

Windows 7 Ultimate 64 Bit Operating System
Intel Core 2 Duo E4500 2.2 GHz
(1024MB DDR PC2-5300 X2) (1024 DDR PC2-6400 X2)
Graphics Card(s)
NVIDIA GeForce 9500 GT (512MB DDR2 RAM)
Get an i7 cpu. $200 or less now
i7 mobo. $200 or less now
6GB of DDR3 ram $100 or less

Probably more than you want to spend, check my system specs. Would work good with OS and all components are cheaper now than what I paid. I have no BSOD to date. Ran W7 BETA first and now W7 Ultimate 64 bit.

You bought the latest software, you might as well get the best use out of it. Shop around, its 2010 and stuff is getting cheaper all the time. W7 wants more resources. It wants 2gb of ram to be happy. It looked like you were using two different types of ram, or specs of ram. Get all the same kind.
