Upgrading amd cpu. What should i get? Budget £70+ Tags: CPUs AMD Last response: February 6, 2013 12:46 PM in CPUs Share yologelo February 6, 2013 12:25:02 PM I currently have an amd x4 640 3.0ghz on an asrock 970 extreme 3. With 8gb corsair vengeance and hd7850 oc edition. I also have a spare hd6850 oc edition which i might sell to get a new cpu. My mobo socket is am3 or am3+ I was wondering if it would be worth an upgrade to get something like: http://www.ebuyer.com/287683-amd-fx-4-4100-black-editio... Or should i just Overclock my current cpu to 3.6ghz+ (i do have an aftermarket heatsink) If you have any reccomendation let me know Thanks I use my pc for gaming(bf3) and photoshopping. I did have my cpu oc to 3.6ghz but upon updating my bios it reseted so i need to fiddle again Apparently new amd cpu's are coming soon for am3+ motherboard is it worth to wait?
