New Processor (Core2Quad)
Posted 24 August 2013 - 04:00 PM
Intel Celeron D 2.53GHZ
ATI Radeon HD 4670 1GB 128bits
So the options I have are those:
Intel® Core 2 Quad Q8200 Oem 2.33ghz 775
Intel Core 2 Quad Q9505 Yorkfield 2.83ghz
Intel Core2 Quad Q8300 4m Cache, 2.50 Ghz Lga775
Core 2 Quad Q8400 - 2.66 Ghz
Which one of them are the best? I would like to know a cheap motherboard for it too.
Also: should I change my videocard? Thanks!

Forget the C2Q and get an Ivy Bridge. The C2Qs are being phased out so anyone that still has any left have started to jack up the price, or they are used/refurbished.

Are they really expensive because of the taxes? which taxes exactly?
Also crazy prices for the Fat PS2, that's a more than 10 years old console.

Wanted to help you but if you would need a new motherboard, I don't know which one is good.
The onboard sound is important for me so I would go for MSI-GD65-Z77 but for a C2Q, I don't know.
Wish you the best.

All sorts of people sell there, however, you can see the most high-rated sellers. I want to know the best parts for my PC as I'm not going to buy it right now. I'm doing a research first so I don't know how many will I need.
I would like to know your opinion about the video card too.

would hold back the CPU you'll get. Or the CPU will hold back the GPU.
Maybe ATi HD4870 would be nice. But what is the main reason for another videocard?
Do you want to play high-end games like from 2011-2013?

Any other places where they sell computer parts? It seems the prices are jacked up over there
not because of imports taxes. It's more like that's the only site in Brazil that sells it.
How about a AMD, you can probably get it for a cheaper price and maybe a AMD FX or Phenom II

Also a question: does it support PCI-EXPRESS videocards?

|My motherboard is a PCCHIPS P43G, I think it can't run quad cores unfortunatly|
According to the product's website, the board you have does support quad core.
For the 4 Intel CPUs you picked, I would go with the Q9505
...or this. You can use the CPU fan you're currently using

What do you guys think?
