    Hi, i just want to ask some advice with you guys, I have motherboard asus M3n78-VM and a dual core processor installed.
    (AMD antlon(tm)64x2 dual core processor 5200+ 2.70ghz,installed memory ram 2.00 GB...
    Is it possible to upgrade my processor to the Iseries processor,INtel or AMD ?....I want to upgrad my processor because i want to make it more faster or better.



    Thank you in advance.

    the watt ratings also mater .. just because it fits on socket dont mean it will work.

    Going back in my memory, I had looked at the 5200 for my last computer ( ended up with 6000+ and paired it with an M378A-CM ) and the 5200 was a 95W chip, so I don't think power is an issue.. Asus lists that board as supporting the AM3 Phenom X4 965 which I think is probably the fastest processor you can put in that. I didn't see the listing for the Phenom 6 cores but the board should support 140w processors

    Looks like it is in even the Asus list and I just missed it... Good luck finding one as they have been discontinued since right around the time FX series AM3+ processors came out

    I have never liked AMD.

    Go intel at least LGA 1155 on Z77 board. At least an i5 3570k. At least 8gig of RAM.
    That will make it faster.:cool:


    It's not one thing which makes a fast machine, it's all of them put together.
