Yep it will. Though 2gb is a waste unless you are playing at resolutions above 1080p.

u should collect little bit more and get a phenom ii x4 955be its perfect for gaming and overclocking it will cost u little bit more but it will give u a lot of better performance than 840 and the 840 doesn't have an l3 cache so u should collect some more buy before the amd phenom ii x4 955be before it get finished from the market.

I'd say get a BE cpu if you can. They have L3 and also can OC.
just make sure your motherboard supports them.
