|If your computer is running well, Don't mess with it. If you want to upgrade to a Core2 Duo or Core2 Quad then check on Gigabyte's website for CPU compatible list. If the CPU is on the list then look to the right and see what BIOS version supports it. If your BIOS supports it then do nothing. If only the newer one supports it then you have the option to look for another CPU that is supported by your BIOS or update to the newer BIOS, but this is always a risk. If you choose the wrong version, you have a power failure while flashing it, you have a RAM error you did not know about, or a number of other things, then when things go wrong you will need a new board. If you are planning on overclocking then you can get more out of an E7500 OC'd than an E8200 for less money and the E8200 would top out your board's FSB before you could get much more out of it (just an example). So choose your CPU wisely.|
If you are looking for decent gaming performance, don't forget to get a decent graphics card or you won't realize all of your potential.
You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
