an AMD Athlon 64 processor 3200+ 939 socket. I run Windows XP. I know it's obsolete by now but my PC is still in good shape & hasn't failed me yet.
I need to upgrade the processor but I don't know which will work. I'm interested in the AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual-Core 6000+ 3.0 GHz Processor but I don't know what all the numbers mean. I just want to know if this one will work with this motherboard. I also do not intend to do any overclocking. The games I have now ( CoD 4, F.E.A.R, Halo and such) run just fine with the system as is. I just would like something thats got the power to run the editing programs I use better & faster than the current CPU. I use Photoshop CS2 along side other photo editing programs extensively and while the OEM processor does a fair job I'm in need of something that will speed up work efficiency. Are there other processors that are better than the one I'm looking at for under $300?
Thank you all.
