Compatable CPU Help Please.

I have a MSI MS-7390 motherboard, and i would like to know what would be the best CPU option for gaming. I am currently using a AMD Athlon X2 7850 Black Edition which i just about keeping up with my needs.
I guess i am wanting to know is there a cpu that will perform better with the motherboard i have or do i need to start saving and upgrade the motherboard, cpu and ram.
Many Thanks

  1. What GPU do you have?
  2. Its a Asus Nvidia GTX 550ti. I know its not great and a new card is on the list. I want to save up and get the best i can in the summertime.
    Thanks for the reply.
  3. Which chipset is it?
  4. That's an AM2 socket.

    I would save up for a new motherboard.
  5. There isn't much of an upgrade path on AM2.

    AM3+ mobo with whatever cpu you can afford would be best
  6. I thought Mobo and cpu upgrade would be the answer. Is there any cpu that would provide better performance for the next few months (second hand possibly) while i save up some money.
    I have already asked the question about cpu mobo upgrade and have an idea what i would be getting but will take a few months to save up.
  7. Nothing of any worth that won't slow you down saving up for the next upgrade.
  8. Thanks for all you help. Time to start saving.
