Get the answer welshmousepk January 21, 2010 1:19:48 AM yes that would be a very good upgrade. just double check the board manufacturers website that its compatible with am3 chips (it should be, most are). if it is, it would be a very good upgrade. bumpbmxsbc January 21, 2010 1:24:52 AM is there anything i can do in the mean time? i was going to upgrade to this with income tax ... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... im new to the gaming side of computer building so sorry if i ask stupid questions, but i assume these componants would help? welshmousepk January 21, 2010 1:34:58 AM yes they would, the phenom II 965 is a great processor, and having a newer MOBO would help with OCing and general performance. bumpbmxsbc January 21, 2010 1:37:17 AM thanks for the help hopefully that will get rid of this lag i can not even do missions welshmousepk January 21, 2010 2:00:57 AM NP unfortunately, GTA4 is a poorly coded game that doesn't run well on low-end gear. GL though. bumpbmxsbc February 5, 2010 6:24:05 PM Best answer selected by bumpbmxsbc. Mousemonkey February 6, 2010 2:34:55 AM This topic has been closed by Mousemonkey Can't find your answer ? Ask !
