My System Specs

Default Totally shocked that my MB could run a Phenom II cpu

I have know experience with AMD so when I bought a cheap motherboard ( asus M2N68-AM SE2 motherboard)that was on sale for $53.00 + shipping and tax came to around $72. I I also picked up other cheap cpu, well today I was a little bored and curious at which CPUs I could run on that board and found out that I can run Phenom II CPUs , I am shocked ASUSTeK Computer Inc.-Support-
I am thinking that I just might pick up a Phenom II just not sure which one.
I have always wanted to try a AMD build but never really got into it

If budget is the mind, I would say the phenom 550, or even the athlon II x4 620.
If budget is not a factor get whatever you want. Depends what are you using it for.
