Thinking About Upgrading my Motherboard

Hello all! I've been thinking about upgrading my motherboard, and I know by doing this I will need to buy new Memory, and a new CPU as well to fit the board.

I want to upgrade so I can run a couple of games and also run the new Windows 7. I had Windows 7 installed, and it was causing my PC to lag constantly due by running my CPU very high.

I was wondering if I can get some good recommendations with my Motherboard/CPU/Memory. Is that all that their is that it has to be compatible with ?

My current PC is an HP A1312n , but I feel its cheaper to upgrade the parts then spend even more on getting a new Computer.

Hi Charliee03,
You will need a new graphics card for any upgrade, also a new Power Supply. I'd suggest a new case also.
In my opinion you are probably best keeping the DVD burner keyboard, mouse and hard drive from that computer and upgrading everything else. It really depends on how much you are willing to spend.

If you tell us how much you wanted to spend, we could give you recommendations based on that amount.
