Upgrading Athlon II 220 AM3 Socket

I want to upgrade a pc with Athlon II x2 , Since this is a AM3 socket, Can I go and buy Athlon II x4 processor(or any better processor with AM3 socket) and it should work as is.. Is there anything else that needs to be taken care of ?

Thanks

  1. Yes, I think it is safe to purchase an Athlon II X4 processor.
  2. The safe thing to do is find the make and model of your motherboard and head over to the makers website where you will find a list of supported CPU's and the BIOS revision needed

    Your athlon quad will almost certainly work , but it wont hurt to check first .....
