MB: Biostar MCP6PB M2+
CPU: AMD Sempron AM2 LE-1250 2.2GHz
Ram: 4g Corsair PC2-6400 800 mhz (most it can handle)
Video: Nvidia GT 430 OC Edition, running HDMI to 32" Vizio tv
HDD: 1 500g (Primary) and 1 640g WD Blacks
I just added the ram and installed Win7 Ultimate the other day, had the video card installed for a couple months now, Win7 gives me a score of 4.1 because of the CPU, I went to the Biostar page for my MB, http://www.biostar-usa.com/app/en-us/mb/introduction.php?S_ID=423#cpu
I have found this CPU at ebay, AMD Athlon II X3, 3.1 ghz, ADX445WFK32GM, AM2+/AM3, 95 watt,
Now, according to the Biostar page, this product number will work, but the product says AM2+/AM3, while my motherboard specs say AM2/AM2+ but the sSpec/OPN# number matches the Biostar list. Is it compatible?
This pc will play my games, just not at the level I wish, after I get my new pc built, (buying the parts a little at a time) this one will be for streaming video and playing lan games anyway.
I actually built this pc in the first place to keep the wife and kids off of mine, now mine took a crap, the wife and kids have moved on so I'm using it now, lol, and I want better specs.
Can anyone give me some insight as to if this will do me any good?
