✔ Best Answer
It doesn't appear that your board supports the Phenom II or Athlon II, so you're stuck with the 1st generation. You didn't tell us which X2 CPU you have so it's impossible to suggest which would be a better choice. Check the CPU support list:

AM2 & AM2+ CPUs are getting harder to come by. Here's a cheap Phenom X3 but it only runs at 2.2GHz:

Also, for best performance, you should have 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR2-800 RAM & a decent video card.
