Hi I currently have an Asus M2N32-SLI Deluxe WiFi edition motherboard and I would like to upgrade my CPU, which is the best/fastest upgrade option I have for this motherboard? I currently have an AMD Athlon 64 X2 5600+ CPU installed.

I researched it on google and here on toms forums and I found out that it will only support 95watt CPUs some thread said I can upgrade to AMD phenom II X4 955 if the MPN # is HDX955FBK4DGM, and I did find it but it states that it's 125watts is this right or wrong? I need help, if it's incorrect which CPU can I upgrade to that will be fastest? Thanks a lot guys in advance. I also will update the BIOS to the 5002 version. Here are my specs if that will help

AMD Athlon 64 X2 5600+
Asus M2N32-SLI Deluxe WiFi editon
4GB Patriot RAM
Asus GTX 260 Video card
SB Live Audigy 2 Platinum PCI sound card
WD Raptor X 150GB 10K RPM Hard drive
2x Kingston V100 SSD 64GB Hard drives
500 Watt Antec PSU

Here is the forum I got some information from if that will also help:

Here is the ASUS webpage for your Motherboard: http://usa.asus.com/Motherboards/AMD_AM2/M2N32SLI_Delux...

Use the tab labeled CPU Support list. It says that the best CPU that is supported by your motherboard is the Phenom IIX4 945 (HDX945WFK4DGM),3.0GHz,2048KB,95W,rev.C3,SocketAM3,Quad-Core and Bios version 5002 (beta) is required to use it.

Thanks that is right.. I overlooked that, it's still a better CPU then my "dual core" at least I will have quad cores now. I will have to wait about a year until the new line of Intel's CPUs come out to fully upgrade, I am done with AMD right now. What Win7 index score will I achieve if I upgrade to the 945 CPU? Right now my index score for the 5600+ is 5.9 everything else is 7.1 or higher.
