HP Recommended
HP compaq 6005 pro SFF PC
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi Please, can you assist me,

I am wanting to upgrade my pc ( Model is above ) and I am unsure what CPU's would be compatible with my PC, I have an AMD Phenom IIx2 b22 CPU in at the moment but as I say I am wanting to upgrade the CPU. The specs are

 

HP Compaq 6005 pro SFF pc

8Gb of DDR3 memory

AMD Phenom IIx2 B22 2.8 MHz CPU

AMD Radeon HD 8350 graphics card

 

Windows 10 pro 64 bit OS

I know it is not the greatest PC but I am just trying to make a low budget gaming PC and would love a better CPU in to help it attain a better quality of performance, please any advice would be grateful with this matter.

Thanks 

Martin.

The only other processopr that has a higher spec and compatible with your desktop's motherboard is the AMD Athlon II X2 B24 Processor (3.0-GHz, 2MB L2 cache, HT bus 3.0)

 

 

That is only 200 Mhz faster and not really worth the upgrade since it will not provide a perceptible increase in power.
