I am looking to upgrade my computer and was looking at
AMD Phenom 9600 Agena 2.3GHz Socket AM2+ 95W Quad-Core Processor Model HD960ZWCGDBOX - Retail
for the processor, but I am unsure if I can just swap mine for this one.
I do not know much about my current prebuilt dell, but I ran Belarc.
Board: Dell Inc 0UW457 A03
Serial Number: ..CN698616B4020E.
Bus Clock: 1000 megahertz
BIOS: Dell Inc 1.1.4 12/09/2006
2.40 gigahertz AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core
128 kilobyte primary memory cache
1024 kilobyte secondary memory cache
I would honestly prefer to upgrade my mobo as well, so that if I decide to SLI vid cards, I have the option, as when I replaced my stock card with an 8800, I saw there was no SLI option.
So I was hoping to get some feedback from a few people on their thoughts as far as if this is a good processor choice, and if theres a significant upgrade compared to my current one.
All advice and links to mobo's and processors would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
(Budget tops is 500, but would like to stick around 200-350$.)
