I'm upgrading my PC, however, I'm not that versed in CPU sockets, etc.
My current kit is as follows:
CPU: AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 5600+
GFX: ATI Radeon HD 2600 XT
Now, I want to upgrade to the following:
CPU: AMD Phenom 9850 BLACK EDITION 2.5GHz Socket AM2+ 125W Quad-Core Processor
GFX: SAPPHIRE 100245L Radeon HD 4850 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express
My question is this: Will my current MOBO (motherboard) allow the new Quad Core, or am I better off getting a new one? If I need a new one, what socket do I need? Anything AM2+ or do I need a specific MOBO?
