So now I'm thinking maybe I need a new motherboard and processor. I have an HP m1195c Media Center pc. It has an Asus Puffer motherboard with a Pentium 4 3.0 ghz processor. What I'd like to do is upgrade the motherboard and processor and be able to keep the HP case. It would also be nice if I could still use my DDR PC3200 memory.
Must also have support for PCI-E graphics for later upgrade.
Any suggestions from those more knowledgeable about computers? I've done some research, but got a little overwhelmed. When I built my first computer way back in 2000, all I had to worry about was socket A or 775, pentium, celeron, athlon, etc. I haven't kept up, now I don't know what's what with core i7, duo, quad, ad infinitum.
