I have upgraded the ram to 2GB from 512mb. Added an extra HDD. And put in a Nvidia 9400GT.
I want a new processor, but the socket is so old, the motherboard needs to be replaced.
1) Do I need to get another copy of windows if I upgrade the mobo?
2) If I don't need to get Windows, I'm looking at an Eight Core AMD and a new Micro ATX (case only accepts Micro). How much is that going to stall the GPU? Will I still get the full speed of the CPU?
Yes I know Eight Cores is over kill, but hey, the Pentium D is slow as fuck (and I got the slowest Pentium D), and change is good...
I will probably get new ram too.
I know that anything over 4 cores isn't really worth it, so which one of these would give me the best speed:
