What processor Can i get on an AM2+, please help me im special!!1

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hi everybody.

I've got an ASUS M3N72-D motherboard. Its compatible with AM2+ CPUs. I also heard that AM3 chips are backwards compatible with AM2+

Can someone please recommend me a processor that will go into my motherboard with the minimal ammount of trouble, i enjoy playing games alot, but im budget.

My current system is an AMD Phenom 9650 Quad core 2.6ghz
4GB of OCR ram DDR2.
500GB HD
Geeforce 460 GTX

So can someone recommend me a decent proccessor for my PC, in i'd say the 100-200 price range. IT would be a great help for me. Also if one is going to recommend an AM3 proccessor please explain specifically as to what to do in BIOS and rate the difficulty of it.

Thanks alot for help anyone can give me.

Feel free to link me repuatble sellers online like ebuyer.co.uk or any website you TRUST. Inside the links of course, with proccessors you suggest.

Peace!

I just assume my proccessor is bottlenecking, im getting like 40-30FPS in dragon age origins (this is with drivers, everything updated)

I just dont get whats wrong, I just assume its my proccessor right guys?

You can run Phenom II chips in there as well, so I would recommend one of these.

I used to have a Phenom 9600 with a GTX 260, went to a Phenom II X4 940, and yes it was a huge improvement. Incidently i sold the 9600 a couple of months ago on ebay.



Got £51 for it! If you got £30 for yours and knocked that off a 1090T, that would be a very nice cheap upgrade that would definately notice!

The 955 is always a solid choice.

1090T £179 all in from Amazon. Yes you can get a quad, but if you have up to 200, why not get the best that will slot straight in? I wouldn't recommend a non be thuban though as some older boards don't overclock so well on the fsb with thuban, mines terrible. I could get 290Mhz with the X4 940, but only 10Mhz with thuban, don't care though, i can still run at 4.4Ghz on air!
