My System Specs


If you plan on overclocking, you may as well buy a cheaper Phenom II X4 BE and pocket the saved cash or put it towards other parts of the system. Depending on what you'll be doing with the system, you could even step down all the way to a 550/555 BE X2. Chances are you'd be able to unlock to at least a tri-core and get some decent clocks.

EDIT: Sorry, didn't realize that the 975 is what you already have. As others have said, there is likely no reason for you to upgrade. Of course, you didn't list your GPU, so there might be a viable upgrade option there.
For my part I know nothing with any certainty, but the sight of the stars makes me dream.
