Having problems with your HP Pavilion a1720n PC Desktop ?

Mother Board upgrades

\015 Hello,\015\012\015\012My 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$).\015\012Thank for your time, John G.\015\012\015\012http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=3403908&Sku=MBM-680ILT-Q6600\015\012\015\012http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=3827924&CatId=2406\015\012\015\012http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=3827915&CatId=2406\015\012\015

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.
