My computer is getting old and I want a new processor to have for case of emergency.

I need to make sure what i get will be compatible with what i have. I don't think they make my old processor anymore and would like a faster one anyway if it would work.

Currently have amd Athlon 64 x2 5200+ Windsor 2.6GHZ socket AM2 Processor

My motherboard is Gigabyte GA-M59SLI-S5 Socket AM2 NVIDIA nFORCE 590 SLI MCP ATX AMD motherboard

Which one can I get that will give me no headaches? thank you in advance

(updated typos)

It is best to visit Gigabytes website and see which processors are compatible with your motherboard. From there you can pick and choose to see which CPU you would like to get.

Here is a link to their support page for your motherboard.

AM2 socket CPU’s have stopped production. You may have a hard time finding a new one. You can try to see if eBay or Amazon would have a used one. Just be aware that there won’t be any warranty for these CPU’s
