    I have this motherboard: http://www.payhalf.com/product/1/6/29568 (ASUS P4P800E) and it keeps randomly freezing since ive updated the sound and bios on it a year ago. I want to get something to replace it (not the same one, ive searched the web and many people have the same problem) but I don't know what would be a good one that would support my current system (listed at the end). Any advice on what to get so I can stop the random freezing and actually enjoy using my pc again?

    Intel D865PERLL, another stick of corsair to run dual channel, and get a decent power supply.

    That's an expensive CPU for being two generations old. If you're going to replace the motherboard AND the processor, you should really aim higher than that; it will cost more, but the spec you've got now will last maybe a year and a half before it's too slow to put up with.
