Help choose cpu!!

Hey, can you list a few processors that will work with this mobo? I don't need a super expensive cpu, but should be one that is quad-core. Also, I don't mind if it has been used. The highest watt is 95, and I am looking for some AMD Phenom II x4. I have found one AMD Phenom II x4 840, that is 95w on craiglist for $50. I was wondering if this is a good cpu or if there are others that surpass it.

    Have you tried putting another celery on it to make a dual core?
  9. I can't, the motherboard only supports 1 CPU.

    Try compressing the celery, maybe place a carrot somewhere in there so you can have decent integrated graphics.
