Hey, I thought you up and disappeared! Welcome back to the Lions den! LOL

Well, hopefully you read over the link I supplied here. It pretty much sums of the differences in the CPUs which fit your Mobo.

You should read up on Milti-core processors, too. Then, you'll have a better understanding about what type of software is needed to support them. x6 and x8 are the furture.

I did and thanks I also read the feedback in the 6 core I ordered and it looks like a great choice and to make my computer faster next month I plan to upgrade to this hard drive for my main boot drive
Western Digital Caviar Black WD5002AALX 500GB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive
Cause I find this green drive as a boot drive is kinda slow could be cause it's only 5400RPM lol

The only thing I don't like is I will have to reinstall Windows 7 after I upgrade to the 6 core CPU and I just did when I bought my motherboard less then a week ago lol

yeah that's most likely why your boot is slow, you could maybe consider getting maybe a ssd in the near future when they get a bit cheaper and use that for your boot and os and all your programs on the hdd and you will be flying fast

Here's something I found on the Internet.

What makes one processor better than another:

Processors are often measured in clock speed. For instance, a modern processor might have a clock speed of 3GHz. That means that it is able to perform 3 billion basic operations every second. If you count multiple cores as a single 'processor', then the number of cores is also a quantifiable measure of the processor's capability.

That said, there are other important concerns. Independently of clock speed, a processor's architecture also has a significant effect on its performance, one which is far harder to quantify. Also, different kinds of tasks have different levels of efficiency, and ultimately, a computer's processor is almost never using its full potential.

Time to hit the sheets. catch you later.

Next month I am buying a new WD 500GB Black SATA 3 hard drive for Win 7 boot drive. This and the new CPU I ordered should make this computer fly lol Also by what I hear no computer store in Bridgewater ever sold any of the FX series CPU's so I may be the only one in my town so I could say: Bragging rights? LOL

What's the population in that town?

If you save any movies on the HDD, you might consider a 1 TB size.
