I currently have Pentium 4 and biostar motherboard with LGA 478 socket. I want to upgrade so that I am safe for another 7-8 years.
Should I upgrade to LGA775 ans hence Core 2 series or LGA1156 and Core ix series?
Lets assume I go with LGA1156. So, what processors (Intel/AMD) are compatible? And, roughly, will LGA1156 be mainstream for atleast 5-6 years? So that, if need be, I can upgrade only processor in the future?
My usage is quite varied - father uses it for accounting purpose which requires normal CPU power, I use it for games and software development purposes which require faster CPU.
Thank you all for your answers.
