Can I upgrade my processor to this?
Jun 8, 2012, 5:31 AM
I have been googling like no one's business. Maybe I just don't know what to google, but I haven't gotten very informative results. So here's my question.
AMD Athlon 64 X2 4200+ (windsor), AM2 socket, 90nm - processor (
Asus NODUSM3 - motherboard
nVidia nForce 410 - chipset
Can I upgrade to some type of Phenom II? (something on this list link
I have read multiple time that AM3 processors will work in AM2 sockets, but I couldn't find out if the whole 45nm and 90nm difference matters.

It might be possible with some (although I personally haven't seen it), but I can almost guarantee not with yours. It's an OEM board and not a great one at that.

I love computers and everything to do with them; however, sometimes I really hate them lol. A giant poop in a barrel. Thank you though.
