I was thinking http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115037
But really, People told me I need to check my Motherboard to see if its compatable and I have no Idea how to do that.. IF you guys can figure out what CPU I can get that my Motherboard will be able to run and What I have to do after I switch the CPU and turn it on my Comp.
I really dont want to spend that much money on a CPU, But if I have to I will.
I need a CPU that is a Core 2 Duo @ 2.0 GHZ atleast.
I really appreciate the help! All of my specs for the Game I want to play is Fine, it just says I need a Core2Duo @ 2.0Ghz for Minimum Req. And I want to play the game at a decent rate
THANKS IN ADVANCED!
