hi I have an MSI 790fx-GD70 and a Phenom II 965 and I'm looking to upgrade for streaming, can I use an AMD FX 8 series with this motherboard?

Best solution

That motherboard does not support AM3+ processors so unfortunately no.

The best you can do on that mobo is a Phenom II X6 1100t, which is no slouch.
