So, I have the ASUS P5G41-M LE Micro ATX Mobo.
I checked up some specs on it because I will be upgrading my current "rig"

2.9Ghz Intel Dual Core
3GB Drr2 800
1GB Geforce 9400GT

But anyways, Checked online..on newegg
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131622
It says that I can run DDr3 on this mobo, but when I checked the manual itself from the box, it never mentions ddr3..But this is 100% infact the same mobo.

Any help please?

P5G41-M LE is DDR2, and the P5G41T-M LE you linked to is DDR3.

If you look at a DDR2 memory slot the keying notch is close to the middle. On DDR3 it is noticably closer to one end.

Ohhh alright, Thankyou very much! I didn't notice the "T" at the end of that Mobo model xD

Sorry for the stupidity!

Also, What would you recommend as an upgrade for gaming? On my rig and what not?
If so, a link possibly? Looking for something affordable aswell, I try and do intense gaming. Such as Black ops, decent new age games. I currently can run games like New Vegas pretty high or max, So I was just wondering :)

Also..As far as processors. Is there a noticeable performance increase with Core 2 Duo vs Intel Dual Core? How about it compared to a Quad?

Or better yet..What if to save $130 on ONE processor..upgrade the mobo and the processor both to AMD?
For about 190 I can get
This MSI AMD Supported mobo CLICK HERE
Which supports both (Woopty doo) USB 3.0 and DDr3
Aswell as this 2.9Ghz Quad core Propus AMD Athlon II x4 CLICK HERE

Wouldnt that just be a better investment? To a slow start of an upgrade? Then just snag 4GB of DDr3 for about 50-60? Crucial or Gskill of course ^.^
