    im looking at the fx8350 but i know its not a true eight core so will it be good for hosting an minecraft server?
    - yes

    and a wamp server?
    - yes, very good for LAMP/WAMP

    and sometimes games?
    - Its not a 'bad' gaming CPU, it's just that the Core i3 leaves it in the dust price/performance wise, and the Core i5 even more so.

    Will it be able to run adobe dreamwever?
    - yes, it has 4 x L1 code caches and 8 x L1 data caches, so Dreamweaver should fly on it!

    Will i need a new motherboard?
    - definitely yes, lots of choice here. ;-)

    Will i need to replace any other parts?
    - You might need to get some DDR3 RAM

    To check your motherboard, run MSINFO32 from the Start Menu, and look under both System Manufacturer and System Model.

    Enjoy, and welcome to the forums.
  2. thanks for your response and what about core i5 3570k how will that do for the questions above and what is LAMP? And a good sugestion for a new mobo under 100€? And my psu is a 550W do i need an upgrade?

  3. LAMP is Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP/Python/P-etc.
    WAMP... well I guess you already know that one ;-)

    Bookmark this for later, or if you sell your motherboard:
    - https://www.google.com.au/search?q=MS-7502+Medion+site:medion.com

    100 euro's will get you a very nice motherboard for dedicated game server use.
    - I wouldn't bother making the leap to Core i5, it'll cost more in this case and might not be as good for the roles you have defined.

    I can look into it later if you want, and there are hundreds of others here to help too.
