    That is an AMD motherboard, so no it wont work with your Intel CPU. The DDR2 memory also wouldn't work as the motherboard uses DDR3.

    I have an UEFI motherboard and it has no problem with NVIDIA GT 630.
    That's everything that I can say.

    I'd like something modern which supports UEFI. If that's not possible, then I might as well keep my current mobo because theres no point switching

    Well I can't guarantee the mobo's boot up to be as clunky as the one you showed above, it's definitely gonna be better. Are you sure? a Q6700 clocks around 2.66Ghz and you mentioned 2.13Ghz in the first post. The only member of the Core2Quad family rocking that was the Q6400 afaik.

    maybe it got underclocked at some point? idk

    I used to have a laptop with an i3 and no dedicated gpu. This PC actually runs games better despite having ancient hardware LOL

    GT630 isn't ancient. And the Q6700 has fight. Beats the laptop i3 anyday.

    Are you looking for 60 pounds TOTAL for your upgrade, or just for the motherboard?

    I am fairly confident that no motherboard would feature both DDR2 compatibility and UEFI. I don't have the dates to hand, but I think UEFI only started becoming commonplace with SandyBridge CPUs (2nd Gen Intel core series). This means that if you want to use UEFI, you will be forced to replace your CPU and RAM at the same time.

    The thing I want to know is why you want UEFI in the first place. I'm pretty sure there were some older motherboards that had a "quick-boot" or "quiet-boot" feature somewhere in the BIOS that would give you what you want.

    Its 4 generations old now, it is ancient as far as computing goes, it was already a low end card to begin with so it did not age well past htpc use.
    Even low end i3 dual cores destroy the Q6700, its almost a 10 year old cpu now and just cant compete with the ipc and better overall efficiency and core performance of the i3's.
