(Solved) - motherboard + cpu(7 posts)
As near as I can figure a Pentium processor is socket 775 and there are no i3, i5, or i7 that are Socket 775. they are at least LGA 1155/6 or above.
Have you maxed it out on memory. Usually memory upgrades are the best bang for the buck (quid?).
I'm running the computer how i got it with 3 gig of ram i already had to get a new HDD as the toshiba that it came with died so i got a WD of the same size and got rid of all the added acer crap but kept the drivers and it runs better but it can't handle the games i play, thats why i want to upgrade the CPU
