I just bought a dell optiplex 380 dt for 65€. Here's what's in it: 
core 2 duo e8400
DDR3 2*2 Gb
What is the best cpu I can buy for this pc? X5450? I'll upgrade the ram to 2*4Gb.

    The X5460 is only a few dollars more than the 5450 and gets you a slightly higher clock, but anything above that becomes prohibitively expensive for such an old chip. All of the chips on Aliexpress seem to be pre-modded to fit LGA 775 boards, so that shouldn't be an issue. Don't bother with the X54*2 chips, since the motherboard doesn't appear to support 1600MHz RAM. Mainstream, top tier, LGA 775 chips are too expensive to bother with in this case.

    Hello my hd7750 is dead (black screen if i try to install drivers).
    I bought a gtx 750 (GV-N75OC-2GL) but the dvi slot is touching the bracket of the motherboard but it works. Should I bent it?
