    I'm planning on upgrading my processor later on to a core 2 duo e6750. The thing is what motherboard should I get because right now I'm on a dell E510 and the current motherboard in my computer doesn't support core 2 duo processors.
    What's a good motherboard that will fit and is not too pricey?

    Thanks.

    You are likely better off building a whole new pc, rather than try to upgrade a dell. You may run into problems and find out that only other dell parts will fit your case.

    If you think that you may want to upgrade in the future then it is best to build your own pc and stay away from propriatary parts. This way you won't have to worry about adding a new psu, mobo, etc.

    Definitely get a new case. I can almost guarantee that a new motherboard will not fit the Dell one.
    Also, are you sure the RAM in your current Dell will work for this new build? It needs to be DDR2.

    What's the price limit?
