An SSD and a few bits of RAM (aim for 4) will keep it relevant for a bit longer.

Want to know which mobo to get?

Choose whatever you need. Any more, you're wasting your money. Any less, and you don't get the features you need.

 

Only you know what you need to do with your computer, so nobody's really qualified to answer this question except for you.

An ssd for sure. At least 240GB.

 

DDR2 is still around, https://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&DEPA=0&Order=BESTMATCH&Description=ddr2&N=-1&isNodeId=1. All memory is expensive these days.

80+ ratings certify electrical efficiency. Not quality.

If you are buying DDR2 RAM, you can pretty much only find it second hand. Where to shop for it depends what country you are in. In the UK I can pick up 8GB for around £25-30 in four 2GB 800MHz sticks.

 

Another thing you could do Is check if your motherboard supports the Quad Core 775 chips. If it does you could get a Q6600 Quad for not a whole lot, That chip you can overclock and get a bit more performance than the CPU you currently have.

 

And an SSD would be a good option too. You can get a cheap 128GB SSD for also not a whole lot.

it does support quad core CPUs, dont have any idea where to get some second hand parts here, or they might just be thrown away since it is rather old.
