My System Specs

Default Higher end LGA775 Quad cores

I'm looking at options to upgrade some aged office PC's. They currently run e8400 CPU's, 4GB RAM, 250GB SSD's and Quaddro 1700's. We've had little to no issues so far, and they cover the majority of our office work without problem. However, I find that the CPU's tend to bog down a bit when I'm running heavy spreadsheets and/or large MS Project files.

There's no need for us to completely upgrade the systems, but I'm hoping that I can come up with 1 or more higher end 'Q' CPU's that I can drop in. Mostly I care about my own CPU, but if I can find multiples for the right price, then I'm interested.

Let em know if you have anything lying around you're willing to part with for a decent price. Trying to avoid the great unknown of eBay.
