i said x4 not x6...and if ur mobo is am2+ then with a bios update it has to support x6 too....but x6 is irrelevent...no game uses 6 cores and its just a waste of money...so im not an amd guy but just try to find out if ur mobo supports phenom 2 x4 955be or not....
acc. to me im pretty sure it does support it.....

The AMD Phenom II X4 955 is a 4 core cpu, and most AM2+ boards do support those cpu's, but a lot do not support more then 95w tdp cpu's, but if you are running a 9950 right now then you can handle the power of a II 955. You might need a Bios update though.

oops wrong link sorry about that....and going for that prebuilt pc is a bad bad idea...just look at the graphics card a gt220....and x6 wont help in gaming and u will get less performance in gaming when compared to 955 be due to x5's lower speed.....

EDIT:and btw ur mobo does support x6...if u wanna go x6 way then get the x6 1100t be
or x6 190t be......if u r well familiar with ocing then get x6 1055t coz u can easily make it run at 1090/1100t speeds.......

if i would be gaming oriented then i would get the fastest quad available to me...if i would do some encoding rendering works then i would choose x6 over x4...then get a gud cpu cooler and call it a day.....
even after all this if my heat issues r not resolved then i would go for abetter case as i suggested earlier.....
