Question Is MSI MS-7641 compatible with AMD FX-6300?

I have this configuration currently:
CPU: Athlon II X2 250
MB: MSI MS-7641
RAM: 4GB DDR3
GPU: Some Radeon

I only use my computer for browsing the internet and watching videos online, but the computer is very slow at times and can hang sometimes for a long time, so I'm looking to upgrade.

I will be getting 4 more GBs of ram, but an opportunity has come up to get a AMD FX-6300 for about $35 (it's in my home country's currency, translates to about $35, at any rate it's quite cheap).

I'm wondering:

  1. Does my MB support that CPU?
  2. Is that CPU significantly faster than my current one? Would it be worth it paying that money for it, or could I find better bang for my buck?

By MSI MS-7641 I'm assuming the actual motherboard model is: 760GM-P23 if I'm not mistaken? If so:

  1. Yes it does - just potentially want to check if you need a later BIOS.
  2. It is signficantly better than the X2 250, but obviously still not great overall for modern day tech. For $35, you're getting a much better performance CPU than your current regardless. (Assuming your CPU is currently your limitation.)
Also just remember adding more RAM to your current RAM is not guaranteed compatibility.

It is meteorically faster than your current CPU however it is still a pretty slow and outdated CPU. I would recommend the 8320/8350 if you can find those for a decent price in your range.
