Will this work

Hello I currently have a dell studio xps 7100 with a amd phenom x6 1045t and was wanting to replace it with the amd x4 975 BE, but my question is will the current dell mobo work with the 975? The 1045t says its 95w and the 975 is 125w.

    Just need software.

    That's how I did it ;)
  6. Im not trying to overclock and if the 975 want be an improvement than i want replace it. All i do is game on my pc so i thought the 6 cores are a waste and the 975 has higher ghz so thought that might do a bit better.
  7. It would be a downgrade.
