I was looking for an upgrade for my friends PC. His currently useing a AM2 CPU, and wanted to know what the higest AM2 CPU Athlon X2 I could get for his PC. I upgraded to 2GB from 1GB of ram, and to a 9600GSO DDR3. All thats left is upgrading the CPU, I'm trying to extend its lifespan. Hopefully for another year, if not two.
Thanks for the link! I'll look it up on ebay, or other auction sites. As the prices for new are more pricy then the Athlon II's.
Do you think it would be worth the upgrade? You know, the extra 900Mhz. Would it see a HUGE perfornace increase, or just a few extra FPS per game? Mostly CoD4MW/2 ... Grid and those types of games. Nothing like Crysis... Just like me he hates that game.
Hi, thanks for the reply. At the end of the day, I never upgraded as he was out of money. But I would probbally in the future if he wanted too. Or just get a new PC case and a new motherboard then swap everything over perhaps.
