Yes, I'm using gateway prebuilt PC. Nope I don't live near microcenter. I can get parts from newegg.
You're using a prebuilt gateway, arent you?
Anyway, your mobo doesn't support Phenom IIs.
Looks like you'll need a new case, mobo, CPU, RAM, and GPU. Do you live near a microcenter?kaitanuvax

if your mobo supports Phenom II: upgrade if not: over haulkaitanuvaxHow do I figure out if my motherboard supports Phenom II?
The CPU is a bit weak, you should up to at least a phenom II 955. The GPU is fine if you don't want to run on high settings, just keep it in the low-medium range. The PSU is fine for now but if you upgrade to a better GPU you may need to up that as well. The RAM is fine though.What is your budget if you upgrade/build?Zevante101I'm thinking about spending 200-400 to upgrade my current PC..
