ATI Radeon HD3450 256MB PCI-E x16 Low Profile Video Card. but I like the MSI mobo with 4 DIMMs so I can expand. it's just was with the extra money for the A10 over the A8 with it if I'm only planning on it laying me a few years before I build my $3k monster. this was very unexpected and I'm trying to save as much as possible and I already have a PSU, Case, RAM (pc3-14900) 8gb (2x4gb). and the case is mATX. so to stay on budget I'm sort of stuck. but I figured anything would be better than the 2.4 Athlon II x2 245 regor OCed to 3.8ghz. But the i3s are older than the AMD apus A series. isn't it? and that's the only chip I could afford without going well over budget.

Best case I'd love to get another athlon like I had that fits my mobo just to get me through a few weeks unruly new parts arrive. and 90% of the Athlon II x2 record are core unlockable, overclockable and they are around 10-15$. I may find one I like and just get it to try it. wish I knew someone that has one I could borrow. but Thanx for your help. you've been helpful. can't remember did you tell me that overall a mobo that has the amount of DIMM slots and the proper pin set for the CPU and contain enough connections for what I use they are basically the same. at least in the range I'm looking at.

Thought on getting an AM3 CPU for 5-15$ would be worth it until I find the right board and CPU in my budget? Thanx in advance.

At your budget you can't get much better than what you already have. Better save up more and buy something better later than waste money now.

normally I would agree with you except I only need the chip to last me three maybe four years until I make my next build. In about 3 years I was planning on building a monster with a budget of approximately $3,000 but until then I just need a decent processor that's going to be a noticeable upgrade from what I have that's not going to break my bank that I can get in combination with a motherboard for under a hundred bucks just to get me through the next couple years. The other option I had was an old old chip that fits the board I have but was better than the Athlon X2 Regor that I have. the comparable CPUs are in the following list:

https://www.msi.com/Motherboard/support/GF615M-P33.html#support-cpu

I would like to get one of the CPUs that is more than a dual core that has the ability to have additional cored unlocked but I'm not sure which one would be best. if you or anyone else has some info on them it would be appreciated. I can get any one of the chips on that list for under 20 bucks I'm just not sure which one would be the most powerful and have the greatest chance of being able to unlock additional cored and overclock fairly well, just as a band-aid until I can afford what I want. Thanx

Late reply but if you want a quad core look for something like a B59 or a cheap 840T. Some B chips can be unlocked to a full quad core, making them a Phenom II X4 rather than X2.

i got a good deal on an 840T. the only debate im having with myself is whether to trust my mobo and try the new ship or just get a new mobo. im not sure if my mobo is fried or if my mom fried my last chip. and im afraid to try the new chip i ought if its a bad mobo and it fried my last chip. leaning more towards getting a new board. can a mobo short curcuit and fry a chip?
