Novatech normally have some good bundles as do Komplett if you are replacing several bits. Can your motherboard handle the new processor?

Yeah the motherboard can take it :-)
Its a bomb !!

Another thing, I have the opportunity to change my motherboard !
Not really any need to change it but if theres something else out there thats a good overclocker with similar features and extras then i would.

What would you go for ?

Theoretically ? I may change it for another good one but i dont really want/need to.
