It's sketchy as all get out and requires a ton of work to get it stable. It wasn't designed for the AM2/AM2+ socket and for the OP (who states that he's not too tech saavy) it would be a lot of work.

Refer to this thread.

would take a lot of effort to get a 555 working on an am2/+ board. just get a new gpu, and im sure we can all suggest something for you depending on budget.

Agreed. There are a ton of great processors that will perform a million times better than the integrated GPU you have now.

It might work but likely not unlocked due to TDP concerns
post #15 of 20
Yea a couple of people got it working in that thread I linked above but it sounds like it would be a serious job and I'm not sure the OP is up to it. I mean this is OCN and he'd have tons of help so by all means OP if you'd like to try that 555 on an AM2 board go for it. Just know going in that it's not going to work right out of the box. There are ram adjustments and bios flashes that have to be done before it'll operate without a ton of BSODs.

Thanks all, Is there any video card that would be good for gaming around $90-100?

What are you talking about? I've gotten AM3 chips to work on AM2+ boards before. Just check to see if the bios supports it. There's literally no difference between the chips aside from that. If there are differentiating total pin counts, I haven't encountered any problems.

The Phenom II 550 is going to be like god when you get it. I'd try to find something like a 4890 for the GPU. You can generally find one for like $90 and it'll handle anything you want if that integrated GPU was okay for you.

^this is wrong^


an AM2+ mobo should let you use any of AMDs current processors including six core models (if there is an updated bios for them), but as xd_1771 said, check out the VRMs on that board first, I would suggest reading the thread about it in his sig.

You're right. I was looking at the wrong board when I posted that, sorry for the mis-information.
