Default CPU

What is a CPU that I could buy that would run the 500 series, ones that are not the i7 Series, because, I don't have alot of money, as well as I don't want to by another mother board.

All CPUs will run with all video cards.

What motherboard do you have now?

This is wrong section, but anyways.

He has a 775 socket CPU.

There aren't many choices to go with that wouldn't hold back a 500 series GPU. That being said, your choices are between:

Intel Core 2 Quad Q9650 Yorkfield 3.0GHz

Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550 Yorkfield 2.83GHz

Or anything on this page, if you don't like the ones above. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...CH&Pagesize=20

Hello and sorry, I guess I should re phrase my question. Basically, I want to know what CPU I could buy that would be affordable and would run the full potential, of the 500 Series, that would work in a P5Q Motherboard.

That is impossible.

You need to upgrade your MOBO as well. Every 775 CPU will hold back a 500 series card.

Sorry for my Lack of Knowledge on the subject, but, if I can upgrade, all that, for the same price wouldn't it make more sense? As well as, would that motherboard support the I7 series?
