Default Hmm Upgrades

okay
processor is this-http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103291

motherboard is this-http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131323

memory is this-http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231166


my current cpu is 2.6 GHZ I want more than 3.0

I found a 3.4GHZ but its socket AM3 i would need a new mobo if i wanted that processor
new processor im looking at is this-http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103727


my questions is can you recomend me a mobo for that processor n my current ram? or do I need new ram?
the motherboard also has to be SLI

would i notice a huge difference from 2.6 to 3.4? would it be alot faster? is it worth it?


Thanks!

That is the one I have in one of my gaming PCs.
It's never failed on me, excellent in every way I can see.
Especially for its price and the fact I can fit 8 gigs of RAM in their, considering I use x86.

Very good mb for its price and quality.

If you have a 9950, its not really worth upgrading IMO unless you are going to OC. The 65nm phenom's dont OC worth a crap, so you could easily get 4GHz+ out of a 955 on air.

Do you really need more performance than you are getting? I would wait for an upgrade, and get a new monitor personally. I love my 28 inchers. Definitely worth the upgrade from a 23.

you don't need one, I'm just saying it might be worth it to get like a 28 inch over the 23 and put the 23 as a second monitor.

CPU upgrades don't do a ton for gaming unless your cards are bottlenecked (which it doesnt look like)

Don't let it get that high. it'll kill your CPU.
