Decent mid-cost tri/quad core phenom for AM2+ Tags: CPUs Phenom Last response: June 13, 2012 4:16 PM in CPUs Share acrono June 12, 2012 9:48:09 PM Hey all, I'm looking to upgrade my processor. I've got an Athlon x2 7550 2.5GHz dual core, with a Biostar GF8100 M2+ SE I've seen the support list & it supports up to Phenom II X4 CPUs. I'm sort of looking for a performance per pound CPU that will get decent performance in games like Dota 2, BF3, Crysis 2 etc. Cheers More about : decent mid cost tri quad core phenom am2 o1die a c 159 à CPUs June 12, 2012 9:51:53 PM Newegg has the 95w 3.2 phenom II four core for only $99.99 with free shipping. You might even be able to use your old heatsink if you don't overclock. acrono June 12, 2012 9:52:46 PM I live in the UK so newegg isn't really available to me Related resources AMD Phenom II X4 Quad Core 940 3.0Ghz Socket AM2+ - Forum AMD 2.3 Ghz Phenom 9600 AM2 Quad Core Overclocking - Forum (High Ghz Duel Cores Vs Tri and Quad) & Phenom On AM2 Boards - Forum Can't find your answer ?
