    if you upgrade to a new processor you need to change your motherboard as well to the socket used by that cpu. and stay away from the 9370
  2. Ya I figured that I was gonna need a new motherboard but I have to choose a new cpu to be able to decide what motherboard ill need.What reason should I stay away from 9370?Is a bad choice?What would you recommend to me for cpu?Like I said I use it for gaming and not really any fps but more so MMORPG guy.Thank you for your reply any info is allways helpful to me :)
  3. any amd cpu that starts with 9 is a bad choice. for $240 you can get a i5-4670k and a hyper 212 EVO and overclock. then get a z87 motherboard
