Questions on AMD AM2+ socket Cpu/mobos

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Currently i have:
ECS A740GM-M AMD 740G Socket AM2+ Motherboard
AMD Phenom X4 9750 2.4Ghz 4MB OEM CPU

I got them as part of a cheap quad core pc kit last year and i'm finally ready to build the system. My question is as far as AM2+ cpu's go, is there any other cpu that is "that" much better than the 9750 and only a few bucks more. If not there, is there a motherboard that would take advantage of the cpu enough to make it worth selling the ecs one and paying a few bucks more for?

I do not need great overclocking hardware, as i just set it up and go. I will be gaming on this and i plan on buying a EVGA 570GTX and 4gb(2x2) G-Skill ddr2 with my taxes.

Thanks for any help.

The Phenom II 940BE totally pwns that 9750. You can get them around $100.

940 would be a great choice, but definitely don't even think about pairing that (125W processor) on a 3-phase mobo, on a lower-end brand such as ECS.
