What is the fastest CPU I can use in this M/board...M2N SLI Deluxe?

At the moment I have an AMD +4200

I'd like to get more grunt for doing HD video editing and have seen these CPU's that I would like to upgrade to. They are the x4 Phenom II 810 / 945 / 955 type cpu's.

If so will these make my computer heaps faster than what I have or just a little faster?
And will it be much better for HD video editing????

Cheers
Peter

Well, that is an AM2 Motherboard, and the Phenom II's are either AM2+ or AM3.

The fastest processor that I can find that would work with your motherboard would be the AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+, I think ;). It's out of stock @ Newegg at the moment, but you might be able to find it somewhere else.

It would be quicker, but it wouldnt match a Phenom II 955.

huh, yeah when I built this system like 2 years ago I wanted the 6000 but out of stock so could only get the 4200...

So What about going Intel and i7. That would be heaps faster than this 4200 wouldn't it?
