I need to upgrade a CPU for gaming purposes. Unfortunately, all the CPUs I've found are AM3. The motherboard is an ASUS M2N-MX SE Plus which seems to only support AM2+. Is it possible to update the BIOS for this motherboard so that it could run an AM3 CPU?
Sorry if this is a duplicate question, I've searched for the past hour looking for a specific answer and about to start pulling my hair out. Thanks.
Thanks, drinkingcola86 and socialfox. I've checked ASUS site, too, and found no AM3 cpus listed. The real stinker is that the AMD Phenom 9550 (AM2) would run the games, but has apparently been discontinued. I found one for sale used on Amazon, but leery of buying any PC parts used. Ah, my tough luck. But thank you for the help.
