Best upgrade for K9N2

Last response: in CPUs

I have a k9n2 platinum sli board currently running a 9650 phenom. I do not wish to replace this motherboard as money is an issue. I have been eyeballing the 940 Daneb and the 9950 black for an upgrade. The MSI site says the mobo does not support phenom II yet I see other people using the 940 Daneb with this board. I've also read people take a hyper transport performance hit if they go with the phenom II's on an am2+ board. Any suggestions?

I'd personally take the risk and return it if it doesn't work. A hit on the bus speed will make no difference.

Agreed. I called MSI to make sure and they gave me the thumbs up on the PII 965. Hung up the phone and ordered one.
