    First of all, hi guys.
    I am asking a simple question i'm gonna change my CPU (AMD Athlon X2 5000+), because it's almost dead and i need some suggestions.My motherboard is Albatron KM61S-AM2, and i need CPU for AM2 slot.Some friends recommended me "AMD Phenom II X4 940" - is it good ?
    Actually i don't have a lot of money so to be in the likes of max 100 $.
    I was pretty happy with my CPU(Athlon 5000+) for gaming so i need something in that region.But also i have one more question if i buy "AMD Phenom II X4 940", will i be in need to change Motherboard, RAM, or GPU(Nvidia GeForce 9800GT), in other words is there gonna be a bottleneck effect ?
    Thanks in advance.
    PS:Sorry if my English is bad, it's not my native one

    What do you mean your CPU is almost dead? CPU's don't fail fairly often and there's usually no "almost dead" state for them.

    Albatron tech support is pathetic at best, but you need to check with them which processors are supported and i you need a BIOS update to run those processors. Normally this is posted clearly on the manufacturer's website but these guys don't seem to work in the same manner.
