ASUS M2NPV-VM CPU upgrade?

I need an upgrade for my ASUS M2NPV-VM Motherboard..Right now i am running a 9800GTX+ 6 gigs of DDR2....and alll backed by a jokingly slow 3800+ 64X2 AMD... I need a compatible upgrade preferably under 100$ Primary uses will be gaming (A new system is not doable at moment and i realize my CPU is the major bottleneck).

Cheers.

  1. Hi :)

    I suspect the fastest CPU your old board will run is a 6400 X2 , which was a very fast cpu in its day.... you will have to find one second hand though as no longer sold...

    All the best Brett :)

    Looks like it will take a variaty of am2 and am3 processors including quad-core processors.

    Looks like I'm going to get some more life out of this board.
