Really?  I'm still plugging along with a 2003 built Athlon 2800+ with a measly 1 GB RAM. :-)

Can't help with that.

Are you sure you need new CPU/motherboard?  Would a new/fast video card make enough difference?

Even on this old system, which I can't even run Flash plugin on (no SSE2 instruction set), it's only some polluted JavaScript on some websites that pegs my CPU.
