8GB DDR3, NVIDIA GE FORCE 7950GT -new CPU Need Upgrade to Boost Display, Corsair 750W PSU, 500GB HDD

Think an Upgrade of The CPU-Not sure if the New AM3+ would be OK = AMD FX AM3+ 8320 ,8 Core Or 8350 16GB Catche + liven the System

-----------------------------------------------OR A NEW MOBO AROUND 70.00 -100.00 QUID BE BETTER FOR A NEW 8 CORE?

Need to Re install the Win 7 Home P. OS :

- Updates at every Start Up (100th time) with Security Update for Microsoft XML Core Services 4.0 Service Pack 2 (KB954430)

You will not be able to upgrade to an AM3+ CPU as your motherboard only supports AM3 and I'm not sure that you will see massive results in upgrading to that CPU anyway.

Hi

You could look for a cheap 960BE - 980BE quad and overclock it, otherwise you will need a new motherboard, even the PII 960BE would be a huge upgrade from a phenom I. Also you should really think about upgrading your video card if you are gaming, you could pick up a nice AMD7770 for about $100.

Have Fun

If your going to upgrade then I would suggest the 8320 as it is the same as the 8350 but it didn't perform as well in the power efficiency tests. How much are you looking to spend on a motherboard?

I had until earlier this week a Phenom 9650 2,3 OCed to 2,5 and a M3N HD/HDMI

I upgraded to FX 8320 and Sabertooth 990FX R2 and it has been a huge improvement.


If you don't want to change your Mobo you can put any Phenom II in your mobo from 955BE to 1100T, the only ones you can't use are FX series.
