  1. I am looking to purchase a quad core processor that is compatible with my motherboard. Geforce6100PM-M2 v2.0

    I have read that Quad core can be unlocked on the AMD Phenom II x2 560 black edition if the motherboard will allow.

    My questions are:

    Is this processor compatible with my motherboard?
    If so will i be able to unlock the two dormant cores?

    If not could you help me find a quad core that is compatible with my motherboard for under $100.00 including shipping.

    Here's the link for processor support: Click on the "CPU" section.

    The Phenom ii x2 560 BE is not supported on that board.

    The Quad Cores are listed in the link for you (9750,9650,9600,9550,9500,9100e). As regards to price for $100, i'm not so sure, they all look pretty expensive but maybe if you have a good look around the net, You just might find a good deal.
