    I'm thinking of buying a new CPU soon, and I started comparing to see what is decent and works with my motherboard.

    On Tigerdirect, I came across this:

    Name: AMD Athlon X2 7750
    Socket Type: Athlon 64 X2 (AM2+)
    Processor speed: 2.70 Ghz
    Frontside bus: 1800Mhz (3600MT/s)

    My motherboard supports:
    Socket 939
    AMD Athlon64, AMD Sempron and Athlon 64 X2

    FSB can only be 1600 or 2000MT/s it says.

    Now, I'm not SUPER leet with computers, but I do know a fairly large amount.

    I'm pretty sure the socket types are fine, right?
    What about the bus? Since the motherboard can only support 1600 and 2000, will the CPU's 3600 make it incomatible?

    I must learn D:

    I am not 100% sure about the way AMD's work in respect to the FSB. But the way a friend of mine explained it to me in the past was like so.

    That chip will work, but not to its full extent.

    So i would get a better motherbaod in order to use your CPU's full power.

    I've been wanting to do that for soooo long :/

    The only real drawback is pricing, since I'm only Sixteen x3

    I might be able to find a decent one for $100-200. All I really want is DDR2 or higher RAM support, Socket AM2(+) socket, and a PCIe Video slot. D: (Also has to have an ATX form factor, which also slims down choices)

    Other than that...I dun really care.

    What is your price range? In USD please.
    Also is AMD a necessary, Some of the higher end Intel Core2Duo's have come down in price and some are easily overclocked to very nice speeds.

    $100-250

    Not really a necessity, no. But AMD is what I'm most familiar with xP

    I don't really care what kind it is. Just as long as it fits my needs.

    Does the socket type on the mobo match up with the processor? And you should use newegg, it has the best deals on the web

    I've tried Newegg, they always seem to be more expensive than TigerDirect O:

    But I think I have what I need if I buy a new motherboard

    MB: PCChips AM2N1K-M (Link)

    Processor: AMD Athlon X2 7750 (Link)

    RAM: Corsair TWINX (Link)

    Grand total of just under $200 :3

    It's a good thing the motherboard has a PCIe slot, I dun wanna buy another Video Card D':
