probably not.

you need a better motherboard.

if you want performance increase, you should look at upgrading your graphics card, not the cpu first.

actually, it is an am3 board, so it would work but not very well. I'd suggest an asus or gigabyte or even msi board

no it isn't. that phenom chip is an am2+ chip, which makes it impossible for that board to be an am3 board, and since it is am2+ made pretty much for that kit only, it proably doesn't support a six core.

but he will get more performance from a gpu upgrade, that video card sucks.

I normally would take that as a trolling statement, but i will ignore that part.

no, Vram just helps with your video card increase its ability to keep up with high res and high detailed gaming.

The gpu still needs to be powerful also.
if you want an upgrade look at this
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814121375

that is still cheaper then a six core.
but you really should look into a new motherboard.

No, not to be harsh but things that make a Card Good: (basics)
Core clock and architecture
--How many cores? (for starters)
--What is your core clock?

Memory
--How much VRAM and DDR2? GDDR3? GDDR5?
--What is the bandwith? Can it use all of it's VRAM?

Hardware Drivers and Config:
--DX9/10/10.1/11?
--Is it fast enough to run DX10/11?

Just for starters......

EDIT:
Also, I think it would be wise to follow this upgrade path. (road map)

1 - GPU
2 - Motherboard
3 - PSU
4 - CPU and DDR3 RAM (4Gigs, 2Gigs minimum)
5 - HDD

How does the motherboard affect preformance, i thought it just allowed you to get better parts? and the hd 5850 has a core clock of 725 mhz whilst my hd 4650 has a core clock of 600 mhz, how is the hd 5850 that much better? thanks for all you guys help

because the quality of the components can make a big difference.

the 5850 has a much better GPU in it and can process more data at the same speed.

my old ATI 9550 could clock up to 550mhz, does that mean it is as good as a new card at the same speed. Or my HD5770, it is at 875mhz, does that make it better then the 5850? No.

just like an old cpu at 3ghz doesn't perform as good as a new cpu at 3ghz.

like a pentium 4 at 3ghz isn't the same as a new cpu at 3ghz.
