It has a 450 watt psu, I want to get this cpu:AMD FX-8150 Zambezi 3.6GHz Socket AM3+ 125W Eight-Core Desktop Processor Im wondering if it will make the performance better,or would i also need to get a new graphics card? So will this be worth it or would i also need to upgrade other components for this to work? More about : amd Best solution amuffin a b À AMD February 4, 2013 4:16:24 AM Share CPU upgrade=NO! The FX-8150 is barely faster then the 8120. However upgrading the GPU to a minimum of a 7850 would be a great choice. Don1337 February 5, 2013 6:45:48 PM Best answer selected by Don1337.
