  1. This should do the trick. There are quad core and dual core CPUs that will run on this platform. Obviously the dual core is cheaper but I recommend you save up a bit more for the quad which puts you just a bit over your budget. If you can't get the money for the quad core the dual core should run all games but not as well.

  2. I would not recommend a kuma based cpu, it is based on the phenom I cpus.
    what about this?

    all of this depends on the fact that you can use ddr2 memory on am3 mb of course.
    I think you can but not sure.
  3. the AMD Athlon II X4 620 Propus looks like a winner will this cpu be fast anough to play new games
  4. instead of a quad or dual why not a triple cord proccesor
