I have a
http://www.biostar-usa.com/app/en-us/mb/introduction.ph... .

According to CPU compatability for this MB, an:

AM3 AMD Phenom™ II X4 z980 HDZ980FBK4DGM 3700Mhz 4000Mhz 125W is the best CPU my MB will take.

I'm running a:

AMD Phenom(tm) II X2 565 Processor (2 CPUs), ~3.4GHz.

Is there a way i can make a:

FX processors are AM3+ socket and Phenom's are AM3. So they are not compatible. This motherboard is really the only one that will work with AM3 & AM3+ cpu's: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

If you want to upgrade your CPU, you'll have to upgrade your motherboard. If that is the case, I recommend an AM3+ board.

I'll use my 16GB 1333 RAM and GeForce 550Ti til i can afford to upgrade the GPU, and get betting gaming RAM.
