Hello there members,
As most of you can see (I'm pretty sure all of you can), this is my first post in TechSupport FORUM. However, I'm a real follower of this wonderful community, and I finally registered here because I need some assistance regarding upgrading my CPU + VGA Card.

Current:
Biostar G31 M7 TE ver:6.7
Intel (R) Core (TM) 2 Duo E7500 @2.93 GHz, OC'ed @3.5 GHz
ATI (R) Radeon (TM) HD 3450 512MB
WD Blue Caviar 320GB Hard disk, partitioned: 75GB, 100GB, 130GB


Objectives:
Intel (R) Core (TM) I7 xxxxx
ATI (R) Radeon (TM) HD xxxx 1GB


Here is the thing. In the objectives list, I don't know what the xxxxx's should be. I looked at the I7 compatibility with my G31 M7 TE 6.7 motherboard, and found that several users are running it along, however, at the Biostar motherboard sheet data in their website, only Core (TM) 2 Quads are stated. Is it safe to run an I7? I certainly don't want to brick anything! I also dont' know what VGA card should I purchase, and I could use some help here.
Thanks in advance, looking forward to live in this community!

My first upgrade would be a good quality Mobo.
Brand & Model of the PSU you are using?

There should be a label on the side of the PU with a Brand Name & Model Number.
