Im looking to upgrade my system for some gaming and this is my current set up:
AMD Athlon 64 X2 5000+ 2.6GHz
I plan to upgrade the video card to either a GTS 250 or HD 4850 but my question is about upgrading the cpu. I dont know much about computers so, this is my current motherboard ECS AM2N1K-M Plus Geforce 6100 http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite...
I would like to upgrade to a quad core and I was wondering if there were any good cpu around $100 that were compatible with my mobo or if im just better off going a new mobo.
If I am better off with a new motherboard does anyone know of a cheap combo that includes a quad core as I dont have much to spend at the moment.
I bought that combo. Board is kinda nice especially since the board is free. It has a feature that if you hit F4 on the POST screen you can unlock cores on locked chips. As a test I tried it out on a sempron 140 I had lying around and it worked flawlessly. Since I only needed the setup to watch downloaded anime I just stuck with the sempron since it was doing great. Will probably fleabay the X4.
