That's not quite precise since it doesn't say which model from MSI your motherboard is ;(

Download and run Belarc Advisor, and it will give you a large readout of all your computer's specs, hardware and software. The motherboard info should be one of the first items on the page, to the right under "Main Circuit Board".

For example, here's my Belarc Advisor profile: Dungeon2.html - FileFront.com

Hah, I forgot that has a mainboard tab. I've honestly never used anything but the CPU and RAM info. =p

Still, Belarc Advisor saves all the info to a nice HTML file.

I would recommend something like this: Computer hardware and software at amazing prices, available online from Scan Computers UK

The 6000+ is near top of the line for a X2 (6400+ is top), and would be a good bit faster than the 8450.

The 8450 is the bottom end X3, and it can't keep up with the higher end X2's in gaming. It has three cores, but they are clocked pretty low. If you still want to get a Phenom X3, i would get at least the 8650, if you can't get the 8750. The 8750 performs about the same, or slightly better in some cases, than the X4 9750.

Go to: TigerDirect.com - Computers, Computer Parts, Computer Accessories, PC Components, & Electronics That site has DEALS! Click on CPU's, and you should have a good Idea on where to go from there, along with many reviews from happy and unhappy customers.
