CPU upgrade for 939 mobo

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Friend of mine is currently running an Opty 144 in an Asus A8N5X.

What CPU would you suggest he upgrades to? Or, would it be more practical at this point in time for him to buy a completely new motherboard and CPU combo?

Thanks,
Amped

If he's got decent RAM and an OC'ing Mobo, a 939 X2/Opty is a great option.

If he needs more RAM or his Mobo doesn't OC, than I think it'd be best to start fresh.

I'd look for a good second-hand Opty 165-175, and shoot for around 2.8GHz. That'd be pretty respectable in terms of performance even in the C2D era.

Holy crap:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103582

Opty 180 2.4GHz, 12x multiplier for $125.

Tell him to get this, should be good for close to 3GHz.
