I recommend not getting the Xeon. What I do recommend is getting a decent cooler and to OC that bad boy.

I'd also recommend getting 8/16 GB of ram is as DDR2 is damn cheap these days. 

Finding non ECC memory with modules that big is damn near impossible. The best he could do is probably four 2GB sticks.

Make sure to quote or tag me (@JoostinOnline) or I won't see your response!

What games are you playing a new GPU would help 1050 or better From Nvidia 

But the truth is are CPU's are old as dirt now and its time to move on

Better sell your PC and if on a budget get some 1155 motherboard with any i5/i7. New architecture will utilize your GPU much better.


If you have enough money i'd recomment getting ryzen or intels 8-th series cpus. Intel's 8-th gen single core is amazing and will utilize GPUs much better then anything else.

Computer users fall into two groups:
those that do backups
those that have never had a hard drive fail.
