    Hi Everyone,

    I want to upgrade my processor. I would like to know what should i go go for. Should i go for Intel Core 2 Duo or AMD 64. I have an Geforce FX 5200 256MB AGP graphics card. I want to keep that! So please tell me some motherboard and processor combinations that is good and the price as well! Thanx.

    The newer processors like Core 2 Duo require new mobos and these days the good motherboards that support Core 2 Duo do not have AGP slots as almost all mobo manufaturers have moved on to PCI-e if you are upgrading to a new processors like Core 2 Duo (I do not know much about AMD) it is better that you sell your gfx5200 and buy a new one.

    Also tell us of your budget...usually when someone says that they'd like to keep their existing AGP card expecially when it is a low end 5200 it most likely means that you are on a tight budget...so let us know what you can spend and you will get a more specific answer.
