CPU Upgrade from Intel E6600 Core2 Duo 2.4GHz

Have just bought this new bundle which seems quite a good price.

I understand I need a new motherboard , Ram and CPU

Which this has.

I do like games but have found some facebook games really struggling lately.

I also do some video editing as well for youtube so this should hopefully make the PC much faster.

Which the spec is

Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 2.4GHz
3GB corsair Value PC5300
Samsung SpinPoint T166 250GB
ATI 4850 1GB
Gigabyte GA-945P-S3

I think my Graphics should still be OK for another year?.

I bought a

Novatech Motherboard Bundle - Intel Core i5 2400 - 4GB DDR3 1333Mhz - Intel H67 Motherboard

£249.98 inc vat

So hope its OK.

it will be faster

but i doubt facebook games struggling was down to your pc spec

The games I play are FarmVille and nightclub city but they run really slow unless I reduce the graphics.

I also find MS FSX a bit slow some times as well.
