Prompt for FX proc. compatibility. - Page 2

post #11 of 12
I would build a new rig regardless of what your gaming needs are. Look at FX4300 Vishera, the FX4100 is older.

There is no way he can get a FX in that board though. It's simply not possible to get one in that Socket 939 motherboard. That's four socket generations behind FX...
Once the BIOS is flashed to the absolute latest however, he could hypothetically try out up to an AM3 six-core Phenom II. It's probably safer and especially cheaper these days to look for a solid AM2+ CPU...idk it would depend on what BIOS version he can get and if his PSU has enough power. Anything like a Phenom IIX6 is going to be drawing 95W TDP...almost a third of his PSU. That's a recipe for instability.
