That's the phenom without L3 cache rite? If so, then yes, i think it should make a decent upgrade, especially if you clock the FX up proportionately, to say around 4.5GHz. But don't expect earth shattering improvements :)

As someone suggested before, sell off your old chip to make your upgrade cheaper. And I think you're educated enough to know to check your mobo's updated manual for CPU compatibility with the latest FX chips, and to flash your mobo with the latest BIOS too :)

All the best:)

Its a 4.0ghz stock, 4.2GHz turbo chip rated at 95W.

Don't noe about OC, coz i don't own one, but you can wait and see what others get. According to my gestimation, 4.5GHz should be easy :)
