According to your link you can use a 955 which is the best option

if you cant get up enough to get the x4 910, the 800 series is the exact same cpue but with less L3 cache

let me add this, I replaced an phenom II x2 (255 i think it was) in my grandsons pc with an X3 720 and its a good gamer! Overall the system even feels more responsive. If you have a cooler already youo can get the OEm version. I pd $50 for it new.
