Is there a better cpu then what I have? M2R32-MVP - Page 2

post #11 of 12
depends on your motherboard. if it's am2 you're out of luck. if it's am2+ you can pretty much use any current AMD, save Bulldozer. i'd recommend a phenom ii x4, make sure you get a black edition though.

Your rig is maxed out. You could try buying a Phenom X4 second hand, but that won't last you very long in terms of performance as it already bottlenecks games, even those that take advantage of 4 cores. The Phenom II X4 would be a better bet, but your motherboard doesn't support those.

Oh, don't think an extra GPU will help because the CPU will bottleneck you in games.

I won't suggest you any upgrade path because you'd better think about how much you want to spend first. You can always carry your current GPU, PSU and SSD over to a new system.
