Trying to find a Phenom II 965

#1Cheech001Posted 8/30/2013 3:34:30 PM
My friend is trying to upgrade his dual core AM3 processor. So I figured a 965 would be good for him. But now I can't find one for a decent price, cheapest new one I could find was $130. Just a couple months ago they were easy to get for $100 or less. I know it's been discontinued, but hoping someone here may know of a place that still has some stock that I haven't been able to find.

Live in South FL so no close Microcenter, saw they do have some for cheap.

Nah he wants to go new, may just end up with one of the $130 ones or just wait and upgrade new Motherboard as well.

If he's going to upgrade the motherboard as well, he would be better off buying a newer processor.

Yeah sorry that's how I meant it, just figured he could get more time out of his system with a 965.

Depending on his current motherboard, he might be able to run one of the FX chips. I think my old AMD motherboard could with a BIOS update.
