I'm getting a new customer build for creative editing, but I want to keep the old one alive for occasional use at the farm by refreshing the CPU to get a better performance in Lightroom.

I haven't had much success in figuring out how much more CPU this motherboard is able to support, as I'm not a hardware geek.

My current cpu is: Intel Core i5, 750 @2.67ghz 2668 Mhz 4 core.

Are there any ideas on whether the motherboard can be upgraded to any cpu's currently being sold?
