No, Sir. I have no idea, save a bit of reading I do out of extreme curiosity.

Basicaly what they all saying is...
Build a new computer lol
if you want to max your gpu usage you will require a new cpu which means new mobo and better ram...
Having a decent monitor would bring some eyecandy to your eyes with that gpu

You want budget build and even tho im european so newegg means crap for me ill try and add a mobo and cpu
ASUS M4A89GTD PRO/USB3

AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition

G.SKILL Ripjaws

335$ Total.
Hope it helps

Overclock your CPU. Yes. Google it, overclocking is not hard.
If it doesn't work, I recommend a bigger screen and a new CPU.

If the AM3 CPU's work fine in AM2+ sockets, why not just buy an Phenom II x4 945/940 or something ?
I agree with the others that a better CPU is more futureproof and generally better, but you will save a lot of money if you keep your motherboard.
As I see it, that's a pretty cheap and decent way to go.


EDIT: .. Ah .. The mobo only support CPU's up to 95W TPD. However, you still don't need to change it. Just buy a decent 95W. Like the Phenom II x4 925 or the Phenom II x4 840.
