Hello! I have a question. Can my MEDIONPC MS-7501 motherboard be able to use the intel i5? I don't have much knowledge on the computers side,so it may be funny for the experts if my motherboard is bad. If it can't be able to use it,could you give me some cheap ones that could? Thanks in advance!

No, that can only run original Phenom/Athlon 64 processors. No motherboard can run both Intel and AMD processors, so this can run no Intel CPUs and only a very specific subset of AMD processors from around 2006.

Any significant upgrade will require a new CPU, a new motherboard, new RAM, and likely a new Windows license key. For which ones, would need your budget and your goals.
