FM1 motherboard will only support the first gen APUs. To use the newer Trinity and Richland you will need a new motherboard FM2.

As far as FM1 goes a A8-3850 or A8-3870K are top of that line. Do require 100W versus 65W that your 3400 used.


AMD A10-5800K, XFX 7850 Ultra OC Edition 975MHz, 16GB RAM, Win 8.1 Pro 64 bit, MSI 7778 motherboard, 500W PSU, HP P7-1235, CCC 13.12 WHQL
