Just contemplating a potential CPU upgrade, so I did a search on Intel's site for processors that are compatible with my socket-type (LGA 775/Socket T apparently) and this was one of the faster ones that came up. I've never installed a processor before, and I may not even need a new one for what I'm using it for currently, but I was just curious about potential upgrade options since I just had to replace my HDD with an SSD and I plan on eventually piecing together my own build, so I figured I would check to see what was out there, because I plan on buying new stuff at some point anyway. I was hoping to be able to pop in an i5 or an i7, but they were not listed as being compatible. Any thoughts on the speed/quality behind these two types of processors for mainly trading purposes? I.E. Using a lot of Charts and watchlists on esignal plus a few other smaller programs. Or should I try to go another route given the compatibility with the 775 socket? Thanks!
