Search the name of your processor on the manufacturer' web site. The specifications will tell you which socket it uses. Then check the details of the motherboard that you are interested in to see which socket it has. These two must match. Additionally, most motherboard manufacturers will list the processors supported for each motherboard on their web site.

As you don't tell us the make and model of your processor, just that it is dual core, it's difficult to be more precise. Bear in mind that you can always get an add-in card to supply USB 3.0 if necessary.

"i have dual core processor"

Intel has been making dual core CPUs for 10 years - different models & socket types. We can't recommend a board without knowing the exact CPU you plan on using.

"i have intel pentium dual core processor E5400"

OK, that's an older CPU (2009) & uses the socket LGA775. Here's the CPU specs:

http://ark.intel.com/products/40478...

Socket 775 boards aren't all that common anymore because Intel has moved on. Since you want integrated graphics, look for a board based on the Intel G45 or G43 or G41 chipset. The G45 is best & includes GMA X4500HD graphics & is usually paired up with the ICH10 southbridge chipset. The G43 & G41 have GMA X4500 graphics but the G43 is usually paired up with an ICH10 southbridge while the G41 is usually paired up with the ICH7 southbridge.

I don't think you'll find any of these boards with USB3.0 support, but as ijack said, you can always add a USB3.0 card.

Any of those brands are fine.
GTX750Ti to the GTX960, less and you will not keep up and more and the CPU will not keep up.

Your CPU is fairly far down on the list, consider a fresh start with a complete new build and a more modern CPU, something in the Core i3 or Core i5 of the 4th or 5th generation.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Fingers suggestion to build a modern system would be the best way to go, but if you can't afford it, you can make do with the Pentium dual core. Just make sure you choose an board that's overclockable; then you can reclock the E5400 from 2.7GHz (13.5 x 200MHz @ 800MHz) to something like 3.0GHz (7.5 x 400MHz @ 1600MHz FSB). That's just a minor overall increase of 300MHz but the FSB speed will be doubled.

If you're going to install a video card, you don't necessarily need a motherboard with integrated graphics. If that's the case, you should consider a board based on the Intel P43 or P45. And just so you know, 2GB RAM isn't enough for decent gaming. 4GB is the minimum but it would be better to have a 64-bit version of Windows & 8GB RAM.

I can't pick a board for you, you're going to have to do some research. Gigabyte lists 26 boards based on the P45 & 13 based on the P43, but not all support DDR3 memory.

If you prefer Asus, ASRock, Biostar, MSI, etc, you'll have to check their websites to see what they have to offer. Once you come up with a few boards that interest you, search for some reviews to see if they have any issues. Then you'll have to see if anyone still has them available.

Of the ones you listed, GA-EP43T-USB3. Anything with a 41 in the model number shouldn't be considered & I'm fairly sure the P45 board will be expensive.

Agreed, the P43 and P45 would be good. The T means that is is DDR3 and the USB3 means that it supports USB3.0 though that support will be through a third party chip. This means that your keyboard, mouse, and anything that needs to be active at boot up should be on one of the USB2.0 ports since the USB3 ports will only be active after Windows loads the drivers at full boot up.

Later, keep an eye out for a deal on an E7500 since that really overclocks well.
