I dont need much. Just trying to use this pc to run streamlabs obs but the cpu isnt able to handle it. I have gateway GT5228 motherboard with an Amd athlon 64 x2 4200+. What can i put in there without having to upgrade the motherboard or going for a whole new pc. Im on a tight budget for the time being so i need cheapest option possible.
 
Hardly, I would not suggest an upgrade, cause its an AM2+ motherboard, best suggested CPU i saw is Athlon 64 x2 6400 + but the issues its, 125W.. and yours is 65W.

I would not suggest upgrading of that PC, I would give you an suggestion of whole PC upgrade.
Cause I cannot find the motherboard and see which CPU's are supported, also the upgrade from 4200+ to 5600+ is just small incremental...

Shouldnt any am2+ processor fit and work? Im not going to be getting a new pc any time soon and all i need is a bit more cpu power to run streamlabs so i can play music run my overlays and alerts and use my webcam. I dont accept that my only option is a new pc.
