    Default Best CPU for my motherboard?

    I'm wondering what the best upgrade for a new cpu would be for this relatively old motherboard. It came with my Gateway system model GX7022E.

    The motherboard model is D945GBI Big Lake and Putton Bay. Here is a link
    http://support.gateway.com/s//MOTHER...5GBIG1nv.shtml

    I've got the latest BIOS. Just upgraded my ram to 4gb, and got a NVIDIA 450 GTS video card. I'm asuming I'll need to upgrade the cpu to sort of compensate for all of this. What are your suggestions?

    Thanks in advance!

    How do you know this would be compatible?

    Sorry, not too computer savvy. Just some basics.

    Youre right!

    This mobo have a max FSB of 1066

    Processor Support Intel PentiumŪ 4 processor

    * LGA775 socket
    * 1066, 800, or 533 MHz system bus

    So the best I think would be this one.

    But still think its a patch for like max 3 month till you need to change CPU, MEM and Mobo.

    Yeah, sorry my computer is not 100% custom. I'm really looking to build off of this machine to max out its performance. But just for a little giggle - even when I had only 2g ram with the GTS 450 on this old machine, I was getting the same FPS as most other people with their high-end bragging systems. In reality, you need to spend thousands of dollars to get a comfortable FPS in all aspects of the game. Honestly, I don't have the money to do that.

    Thank you for your input.

    You can have a mobo for like 90$ hat is better

    my 2 cents.

    Anyway it depends on what you do with your PC. Me I like to Overclock everythings in it so I need good quality items.
    And if I have less than 80fps in all the game I play I change a piece to have it ! Nad I play on 1920x1200 on a 24" screen.

    See ya in game

    actually I missed that your board is 1066 max FSB.

    so with that in mind

    Ha! wouldn't you know that the E7600 rates in the high end cpus. It's the very last one on the list, but its still high end according to passmark.
