Reviving Project Oversoul; Needing advice.
I have recently acquired a bit of a rare find: An DFI LanParty DK P45-T2RS for around.....$79.65 USD ($66 for the mobo itself and $13.65 for the express shipping). It came with all the original accessories and the backplate, and the mobo looks like new. I paired it with a Core2 Quad Q9450, and with a stock heatsink. I need help potentially finding a better CPU and cooling solution, and finding a more up to date BIOS so I can fully use the Q9450 or suggested CPU. I currently have two choices for the GPU: A GTX 750Ti and a GTX 1070. Yes this hardware is old, but I want to be able to have a backup solution in the case that my main rig has a critical failure and I have no money saved up to rebuild it. Any help is appreciated and I thank y'all for coming around to my post! Do not mind the silly name of the thread; It has been lingering in my mind for a while.
