Ok we will wait on the MB details.
Upgrading the MB and CPU will depend on your budget, there are also other things to consider with swapping your MB 1: Will the present Ram need replacing 2: Will you need to purchase a new Operating System licence, please see my canned speech below which is intended to ensure that people do not unknowingly break the law and no inference to any individual is implied;
Just a cautionary note, unless your OS disk is the full retail edition you cannot use it with a new MB as an OEM disk is tied to the original MB it was paired with, to use an OEM disk with a new MB is software piracy and therefore illegal.
Exceptions to the above are 1: If your MB is replaced under warranty and 2: If your MB is replaced out of warranty with an alternative type but same brand due to the original model no longer being available, an upgraded MB however will require the purchase of a new OS licence.
