Hey , im currently using a Phenom 560 black edition and am wondering whether i can get a significant upgrade for around the £120 price zone. i can add a bit more onto that price range but anything around that.

Im using a 990-xa motherboard so it supports amd3+ i think it was.

for this price range is there a significant upgrade as this cpu will be used mainly for gaming

Thanks for any reply's and suggestiions

u can try to get a Phenom II x4 975, or maybe even an FX 6200 :) 

Or maybe u can just sell off ur current rig, and get a new LGA 1155/Core i5 build :D

DO me a favor and do not get the FX-6200/6100. They are not true 6 cores, Triple cores were even eating this thing alive.

Phenom II x4 955BE $99.99 http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/searchtools/ite...

Phenom II x4 965BE $109.99 http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/searchtools/ite...

Phenom II x4 970BE $125.90 http://www.amazon.com/AMD-HDZ965FBGIBOX-Phenom-Central-...


Pick and choose, good luck!! They all overclock the same btw.
