I built my system back in 09, I got alot of great help and advise here Thank you all, but its time to think about an upgrade this will only be a temporary upgrade if its possible, until I build a full new system.
Mobo - Asus M2N-SLI
CPU - AMD Athlon 64 x2 5000+ Black Edition
RAM - 2gig DDR2
GPU - Readeon HD 4850
Win XP - Unfortunatly lol but systems run great since 09 with no probs at all since
So what I need help on is : I found a - AMD HDX945WFGIBOX Phenom II X4 945 Quad Core Processor - 3.00GHz, 6MB Cache, 2000MHz (4000 MT/s) FSB, Retail, Socket AM3, Processor with Fan ( $79.99 ) at TigerDirect
Will this CPU work on the Asus M2N-SLI Motherboard? or would my Black Edition 5000+ be better off If I tried to overclock it.
The 945 should work fine. You can find the cpu support list here: http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/AMD_AM2/M2NSLI/#specif...
It's better than what you have, but only you can say if it's worth it. If you are building a new system in the near future, you might just want to hold off.
On a side note, you might want to consider more RAM if you are maxing out the 2 gigs you have.
