  1. Best answer
    Nope. That's an Am3+ motherboard and you need a Fm2 motherboard.
  2. Ah, could you suggest any AMD quad core CPU series' that would fit my board? That are good for mid range gaming?
  3. Why a quad core? You can get the 6 core FX 6300 for about $119. It's the best price/performance cpu on the market.
  4. Oh, I'm not great with PCs haha and am trying upgrade this low range gaming rig, I wasnt aware 6 core was an option, but is that mobo you suggested compatible with my board? :)
  5. Yes the FX 6300 is compatible. You could also get an 8 core processor if you want to spend the money. The FX 8320 is about $160 and the FX 8350 is usually around $190. Both 8 cores.

    Of course there are a few quad core cpus too. The FX 4300 starts at around $95.
  6. Hmm, I may check these out! Thankyou so much btw haha, needed it in time for christmas as Ive been wanting to play planetside 2 and arma iii for ages, thanks!

    Hold on a minute what revision is your motherboard

    3.1 revision only supports
    up to bulldozer i would recomend checking revision in bios
    if this version get phenom 965 as bulldozer crap

    4.0
    revision only supports bulldozer which wasnt very good

    5.0
    Final version of motherboard finally supports viresha

    fx 6300

    revision numbers can be found on motherboard as well as seen in this picture top left of the board

    bios will need to be updated as well

    also if planning to play planet side 2

    you could go with a 6 core phenom if your board cant handle fx viresha fx 6300

    also you will need

    new power supply 600w

    660 ti or 7870

    depends on your budget feel free to pm my box and i could help find parts cheaply usa or uk were you live ?
