Hello, I am looking to upgrade the processor on my PC sometime mid next year. My current setup is: Phenom II X6 1035t, HD Radeon 5750 1GB, 8GB DDR3, AMD 780g motherboard, 300wPSU (I have a 550w but am waiting to install). I have been looking to upgrade my CPU along with my graphics card sometime next year and am not sure exactly which processor to purchase. I know that the fx-6100 is faster and significantly cheaper than the 1100t so if it is possible to get that one I am leaning towards it. So my question is, can my AMD 780g motherboard support the 6100 (I am unsure whether or not my mobo would need a bois update if it is even compatable at all). Anyway it would be great to have this answered so thank you in advance!

Umm, I'd take a 1100t over a fx-6100 any day. I'd argue going the fx-6100 would be a slight downgrade in performance...

Yep 1100t is your best bet but first i need your complete mobo details to ensure that your board can handle 125w cpus.

Thank you for all the responses. I have realized that I have made a few errors though. Firstly, I am not sure if it is a 780g motherboard. I tried opening it up today to find the exact model of the motherboard but was unable to find it. The only number that i could find was P-060047MB100YCE. I also discovered that the power supply was 400w instead of 300w as advertised (I had assumed this because I did not think that my rig could operate at 300w). If it is of any help this is my computer: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I was originally going to build it as I usually do but I saw this for $500 and couldnt refuse the price. One more thing, it seems that the consensus here is that the 1100t is the better choice. I was surprised to hear this because all the reviews that I have previously stated that the fx-6100 was superior. Also I found that the 6100 is $50 cheaper at only $150. So why is the 1100t better in your opinion and if it is is it worth the extra $50 considering I am on a budget and want to buy a 6870 GPU as well.

Thanks!

"I was surprised to hear this because all the reviews that I have previously stated that the fx-6100 was superior. " < what retarded reviews have you been reading? can you show me one? http://www.guru3d.com/article/amd-fx-8150--8120-6100-an...

heres a couple reviews from a quick google search. Its pretty clear the FX cpu's are fail. Can't believe how many people still dont know this, and even the ones that do know they arent any good seem to be AMD publicists make up reasons to buy them like "you dont need that much cpu power for games...or windows 8 will fix everything......blah blah blah" bollocks!

I never claimed that the review I heard was right, clearly it wasn't. Thank you for backing up your answer at least. I definitely will get the 1100t instead, but the question still remains... will it work on my motherboard?

you dont have to open it, look at the box or use CPU-Z mainboard tab

google CPUZ and download and run it.

Im afraid your PC can only take 95w CPUs so the 1100t is out of the window.

I am aware of this I have a 550w PSU that I will be upgrading to support my new graphics card as well

Ok, I had thought that would be the case originally . I will look to see if there are any 95w CPU's I can upgrade to. thank you for all the replies everyone

However, I do have one more question. Can a processor with 32nm technology be used on my motherboard?
