According to the info you provided, the Asus M4A78PRO is an AMD board and can not be used with an Intel processor.

I like Newegg.com. I've used them for years without a problem. Like Kuwese said, don't use an Intel brand board.

If you don't even know that you have an AMD based system and bought an Intel CPU do you think you should be assembling an system? You might be better off to use a shop or an online store.

RAM: Corsair 4 GB(dual channel)
GPU: Sapphire Radeon HD 5750
CPU: AMD Phenom X2 620

Why would you replace a perfectly good AMD system with an Intel system? No, offense meant, just puzzles me.

I've been upgrading the system with better hardware the last 2 months.
At first my system looked like this:
Mobo:M4A78PRO
CPU: AMD X2 620
GPU: NVidia Geforce 9600GT
RAM: 4 GB (dual channel)

I've upgraded the GPU, and now, all thats left is the CPU and the mobo.

And im not building a new PC, just upgrading it.

Core i5 is better than phenom x2 620 but that not a good reason to replace amd system.

It's all relative to what you do with a machine. Do you play games / graphics design or do you feel you have to have the latest and greatest?

I usually play Cod4, Cod6, NFS Shift, Cod5, Counter-strike source, flight simulator, half-life 2 etc.

Found the following mobo:
GIGABYTE GA-P55-UD3
compatibel with all the hardware i have on my current system except the amd cpu(which is going to be replaced by I5)

GIGABYTE GA-P55-UD3 supports PC3-10600, PC3-8500, PC3-16000 RAM technology, but i have 2 RAM's with PC2-6400. Will they be able to run on the mobo?

Go ahead and waste your money. Your current system is more than adequate for your needs.

There is mail service here, but i think it would be kinda expensive. cause it would maybe have to go from Greenland to denmark, from denmark to the designated destination.
