Ok what should i look for to see what kind of cpu the motherboard takes? Link for the motherboard http://www.gigabyte.us/products/product-page.aspx?pid=3143#ov

I have replaced a cpu before but I have no idea what kind to look at. Any suggestions?

An AMD Phenom II X4 965 would be a good boost if you can find one for cheap. That's about the best you can get for your motherboard. That's what I have along with a Radeon 7950 and I can play modern games fairly well.

Unfortunately it looks like they're going for over $100 on ebay. Probably not worth it at that price.
