Therein is the trouble. The board will not take more than a 95 watt chip.
Maybe looking at this...http://cgi.ebay.com/New-AMD-Athlon-II-X3-440-Socket-AM3-/120725123516?pt=CPUs&hash=item1c1bc731bc
Though at that, maybe this one....http://cgi.ebay.com/AMD-Athlon-II-X4-635-2-9-GHz-ADX635WFK42GI-Processor-/130522390106?pt=CPUs&hash=item1e63bd9e5a
Only question becomes, I've still got the 5400+...will the stock heatsink on that cool one of these until I could get a better cooler?
Thanks for the help, according to the chart, looks like it would be a significant upgrade. I know I looked over on anandtech.com on their benchmark section and with an x3 there was like a 10 frame difference in some games.
Edit...here's the CPU support list.....http://www.gigabyte.us/support-downloads/cpu-support-popup.aspx?pid=2539
