Specs: Windows 7 64b, AMD Phenom X3 8750 / 4gb
Just wanted to know if AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition Deneb 3.4GHz 4 x 512KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache Socket AM3 125W Quad-Core Processor works with my mother board. I have a GIGABYTE GA-MA785G-UD3H AM3/AM2+/AM2 AMD 785G HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard.

I want to upgrade my CPU because I'm getting huge fps drops on the battlefield 3 beta and I understand this would help.

How do you figure out which processor goes with which board? Sorry for my ignorance :)

This is what I have now:

GIGABYTE GA-MA785G-UD3H AM3/AM2+/AM2 AMD 785G HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard

XFX HD-487A-ZWFC Radeon HD 4870 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

Thermaltake W0106RU 700W Complies with ATX 12V 2.2 & EPS 12V version SLI Certified 80 PLUS Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply

AMD Phenom X3 8750 Black Edition Toliman 2.4GHz Socket AM2+ 95W Triple-Core Processor HD875ZWCJ3BGH - OEM

Patriot Extreme Performance 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model PDC24G6400ELK


Thank you for the help!

Yes, it will work, but according to system specs, you also should have a card the supports dx11. This would mean a new cpu and video card. Why don't you try turning down the settings in the game. Your system does meet the minimum requirements.

Have you tried overclocking your current CPU? Kind of pointless to get a Black Edition if you don't take advantage of it, don't you think?
