Can anyone tell me what the fasted processor my motherboard can be upgraded to?
MSI MS-7325 (K9N4 SLI)
Current Processor is:
AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 5200+ 2.61 GHz
4 GB RAM

I just bought the Adobe Creative Suite 5.5 and was hoping I could install a new processor to speed things up.
Thank You.

Yes here you go, the full cpu support list, and the bios upgrade you will need to flash to so the mother board see`s the cpu correctly.!

Not worth it to upgrade the CPU on that board. You would be better served upgrading to a newer motherboard and CPU combo. You might also need ram.

A 6000+ or higher wouldn't give you much of a performance boost.


There are some decent combo deals on newegg:
CPU: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681... $114.99
Motherboard: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681... $76.99
RAM: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1682... $47.99

Total:
$239.97

I'm sure you could even find better pricing than that but you get the deal.

An AMD Athlon64 X2 6000+ will be between $65-90 USD.
