  1. Hello, I am looking to upgrade my CPU because it is the only thing which make some of my games run like sh*t.

    I was wondering which one, and what kind of CPU. I'm not looking for thé best, but for a decent one. If possible a cheap but still an awesome, fast CPU.

    My computer :
    - Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bits (6.1, build 7600)
    - IMEDIA A7077 BE
    - Default system BIOS
    - 4096 MB Ram
    - DirectX version 11
    - Nvidia GeForce GTX 260 (total memory : 2032 MB)
    - AMD Phenom(tm) 9100e Quad-Processor (4CPUs), ~ 1.8Ghz

    If you need any more information just reply.
    Hope you guys help me out so my pc can even go faster .

    Grtz, Dopeway

    Can you find out which motherboard or chipset your system is running. CPU-Z should be able to get this info.

    What's your price range for the new CPU?

    A possibility:
    AMD Phenom II X4 940 Black Edition Deneb 3.0GHz Socket AM2+ 125W Quad-Core Processor HDZ940XCJ4DGI

    You'd need to get a heatsink for the new processor since it's an OEM chip.

    My Motherboard is IMEDIA A7077 BE if I am not wrong.
    And I would like to spent less than €150-200 (maximum 200)
