Hi, i have an old PC so what i am wondering is will a AMD Athlon II X2 270 Processor - 3.4 GHz, Socket AM3, AMD64 Technology work in my current motherboard ?, I believe it will fit but i could be wrong and would it be a huge upgrade?
I recently threw in a new graphics card and power supply and i want to see if it's possible to avoid getting a new motherboard since i am fairly new to this.
CPU AMD Phenom X4 9650 Quad-Core (2.3GHz)
Motherboard Foxconn A7VMX-K
Chipset AMD 780V + SB700
Memory 4GB DDR2
Hard Drive 640GB SATA
CD Drive DVD±RW
Video Card ATI sapphire HD 6870
Power supply is a 600cx corsair
So will this work and if not what would you recommend? My intention is to use it for gaming, thanks for your time
The AM3 Processor supports both DDR2 andDDR3 RAM, so it should work on the AM2+ motherboard... you may just need to update the BIOS. The only question is if AM3 processors will work in all AM2+ motherboards... but since the Foxconn A7VMX-K ises AMD 780V + SB700 chipset, chances are it will.
