Its the best you can do the 125W dont go with that board.
Why do you want to upgrade it are you sure any performance issue is CPU related? (thats still a decent CPU)
because I have a "cheap" laptop with a intel i7-2670qm, that seems to kick it's butt, and I am saddened, that after putting in a radeon sapphire 6850HD, on top of my phenom IIx6, that my relatively "cheap" laptop can kick its butt..
all benchmarks pretty much show it kicking its butt too.
I just want to hammer away in photoshop (use dynamic brushes of any kind, with multiple layers, on a 300dpi 8x11 docs, and not have any lagginess) desktop has lagginess, laptop nope. WTF!?
My desktop with the phenom has 8G ram, and I run a gadget monitor, and never see anything really use more than 60 or at most even 70% of my ram, and that's with multiple programs running at once, so that doesn't seem to be the reason for poor performance in photoshop.
I am considering doubling my RAM, but not sure if i should or if it's even worth it.
