X2 555 Budget Build

Last response: in CPUs

Hey guys, I was looking to build a budget system with the Phenom II X2 555 CPU and was hoping to unlock it to quad core. I've spent ages researching but I am still not sure what motherboard or PSU to get. I won't be needing a graphics card. So far the Asus M4A785TD-V EVO motherboard looks good, but if you guys could give me any other suggestions I would be very grateful. My budget for the mobo is about £70. Also, could you recommend any good PSUs? I've got everything else sorted. Thanks.

That is a good choice in motherboard but any board with 7xx south bridge should be able to unlock if the CPU will.

I cannot recommend a PSU if you do not list all system components for us to estimate how much power you will require.

Most people who recommend here use list prices from But your currency indicates perhaps you purchase in the UK? Do you have any places in mind you want to buy from?
