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

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?

The faster CPU your motherboard can support is the Phenom 9950 BE. It's actually a pretty decent CPU and is available for a great price.

Just checked out Asus website.

Worshipme's right with the quad core 2.6Ghz Phenom 9950 Black Edition.

I'm not doubting you, i'm just asking for clarificatoin: t the ASUS page does not mention Quad Cores... And would an AM2+ Processor work with an AM2 Motherboard? If it did work, would the BIOS recognize all four cores?

Also, What do you make of: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/...ards,1749.html ?

AM2+ CPUs are backwards compatible with AM2 boards.
