Hello,
I have Gateway 4200-09, with a amd phenom 1.86 ghz processor. What upgraded processors can I use in this motherboard, to help make use of the maxed out 8 gbs of ram? thank you.

It looks like the best bet is probably the AMD Phenom II X4 945 Deneb 3.0GHz

here's a link to it on newegg:

It has the same 95W TDP of your current CPU, and with a BIOS update your motherboard in the dx4200 should work with am3 CPU's.

I have a dx4300 I was going to do this with, but bought a x2 550 BE at the time because it was a lot cheaper, but now the x4's are only 30 bux more.

Keep in mind you have a maximum of 95W CPU support for this board, don't go looking at the 125 W phenom II's.

Im in the same boat Ive been trying to figure out what processor i can use in my 4200-09 but i dont know enough to figure it out!

All I know is its 95w AM2+ and gotta be from AMD! so you think the AMD Phenom II X4 945 Deneb will work?

whats the difference between AM2+ and AM3?

Hello,
I discovered thru researching this on the net, that the fastest processor that I can replace the Phenom x4 9100e, step B2, 1.8GHz, 2MB L2 and L3 Caches, HT 1.6 Ghz, 9x multi, 65w TDP, AM2+ Socket processor with is a Phenom x4 9450e, Step B3, 2.1 GHz, 2 MB L2 and L3 Cache, HT 1.8 GHz, 10.5x multi, 65 w TDP, AM2+ Socket processor, because of the MSI K9A2 Plantinum Mobo, its Socket, and its TDP. To use any other I would have to start from scratch with the Mobo on up. thanks for everyones help.
Muchas Gracias.

The Phenom x4 9100e is a am2+ socket, with a tdp of 65 w, the Phenom x4 9450 has a b3 step at 2.2GHz 1.8 GHz ht, which is a little faster, any processor above this one has a higher tdp, like the 945. So as far as I can tell the 945 am3 chip will not fit, and will overheat, it that correct? thank you.
