|First my specs and I have upgraded some of the components:|
HP Pavilion P6313w Desktop.
AMD Athlon(tm) II X2 215 Processor 2.7 GHz ( I know not good for gaming)
Memory 8GB DDR3 (Upgraded)
GeForce GTX 560 SE (Upgraded)
450W Power supply (Upgraded)
Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium Edition 64-bit.
I know I need to upgrade my CPU because certain games like Arma II lag to say the least. The question is, what can I upgrade to with my current mother board to play games like Arma II. From what I can see this exceeds what I need, but not sure--AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition AM3 CPU HDZ965FBGMBOX - 3.40GHz, Socket AM3, 6MB Cache, 2000MHz (4000 MT/s) FSB. First is this compatable without replacing my motherboard or can I do better? I wouldnt be against replacing the motherboard right now (recomendations?), but if I can get by without it for right now great. Thanks
