My new build prospect
 
Buy the Gigabyte MA785GM-US2H w/ Athlon II 245 CPU w/Fan at TigerDirect.ca


>> I'm looking at the above deal... (Duo core CPU / Great Mobo)

>> seems like a good deal for the price (and maybe a future CPU upgrade wouldn't hurt... but the mobo seems decently put)

Questions:

1. Can the CPU be upgraded after if needed (switched to Quad after ripping Duo off)
2. What power supply is required (in watts or volts)
3. What sort of heatsink is recommended for this CPU
4. Any other further recommendations considering the only extra thing i have is, a case (along with typical wiring), about 1.5 GB RAM (which I'm also looking to upgrade along with this CPU in the future)...


THANKS IN ADVANCE (YOUR INPUT IS GREATLY APPRECIATED) - MIGHT BUY SOON

1. Yes. It can run a X6 with a BIOS update.

2. That will depend on what else you are putting into the computer, especially your graphics card.

3. Newegg.ca - Sunbeam CR-CCTF 120 mm Core-Contact Freezer CPU Cooler W/TX-2

4. Hard drive (Check out Western Digital's Black line), power supply, operating system, optical drive(s)
