Mother Board upgrades

Hello, My current computer is a HP Pavilion a1720n. I purchased it stock with a E6300 core 2 duo processor. My biggest concerns now are the upgradability, and it has come to my attention upgrading my current ASUS P5LP-LE motherboard.This MB isnt able to keep up with the processor and video card needs of today. I would like to know if its possible to purchase a new motherboard/processor bundle and connect all the current cd drivers, video cards and hardware devices necessary. I have taken into consideration the devices that are compliant with the possible mother boards and plan to purchase a motherboard that works best. Is it worth the time or effort? Yes, i have the knowledge and capability of reconnecting the appropriate cables, RAM and video cards. -It is even possible? I would like to know what motherboards to look into and were to start. The link provided are possible ideas i had and price ranges. (200-330$). Thank for your time, John G. http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=3403908&Sku=MBM-680ILT-Q6600 http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=3827924&CatId=2406 http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=3827915&CatId=2406

    its not the problem of updating drivers, its the choice of getting a new motherboard and how If i should replace my current one. If anyone can point me in the right direction of getting a motherboard and installing it that'd be great.



    Thank you

Well hello there i have read your problem and i really think you shouldn't have to waste time and money all you have to do is enter your motherboards model into a search engine on the net and to that add drivers update. e.g. "HP Pavilion a1720n driver update" and the search engine will bring up a list of links that will help you download the latest drivers without any problems if that does not work then try going to the shop you bought it and ask them to upgrade what ever driver that is giving you problems.

You can install a GIANT drive, as you have a suitable processor to handle 1TB if you want.... so a 250GB, 500GB drive will work like a charm, also if you upgrade the Hard Drive, you should also put as much RAM as the machine can take, and you can afford, 4GB would be real good, and speed the machine up more than any other single thing, also get a high speed, 7200RPM, BIG, 8-16MB, cache drive too..
