Changing my cpu
I have a A770 A2+ Ver. 6.x with a AMD Athlon™ 64 X2 Dual-Core 2.6 ghz there is more then one. I do not know the sSpec/OPN# I would like to up grade the cpu with out updating bios. can i do that? If so. what cpu is it and the sSpec/OPN#
check the motherboard cpu compatability list on the manufacturers site. then pick 1 that suites your budget. really you need to be aiming for a 2.6quad as a minimum. but not many am2+ motherboard support quads...
if you can afford it bump your platform to am3+ you will get more bang for your buck, a lot more bang. i know that added price of the MB and ram will cost as much as a new cpu but in real terms you will get more value out of the am3+
I know have not got back an i long time. I got the money to get some new parts.
