It always says its my CPU which is letting me down and not my graphics card. The cpu i have is a AMD Athlon II X2 250 which has a rubbish score of only 1737 on

Of course i want to upgrade this to something much faster such as but i don't really want to have to upgrade my motherboard thou because of price problems and my current motherboard is a so my question is will my motherboard be able to handle this new CPU?

  1. To suport an FX you need a mobo with a AM3+ socket, yout mobo seems to only suport am3 phenom and athlon, so i believe that you cannot upgrade to a FX cpu. best of luck finding something else.
  2. Unfortunately for your wallet, you will have to upgrade your motherboard if you want that processor... The board only supports Phenom/Athlon
