As my title says does it worth it? I already have full parts setup except the cpu is just an Athlon AM3. I can fit a Phenom AM3 onto the mobo so is it a good price for performance ?

Make sure your mobo supports AM3, 125w and hexa core, besides the fact that the chip itself doesn't support many newer instructions that modern games require.

Right like you location specifies and why I specified USD. I'm assuming you wanted me to do the rest of the work for you

https://www.google.com/search?ei=Ir..........0i71j0i7i10i30j0i7i5i10i30.ArpizGVkQD8

Its 50% of the worth of the chip as the current market ebay rate goes.
I did not ask to do any work for me or whatsoever so dont be rude. If you can't reply nicely then don't do it. It's supposed to be a friendly place and if it's because you can't understand me well then my excuses because my main language is french.

Oh it does it's in the cpu support list of Asus :) This 1090T cpu is the third most powerful one this mobo support.

Look at your bios number, it may be it can run with the cpu, but it may require a bios update.

If you are coming from an AM2 chip and are sure that your mobo will support the 1090T for $60CAD, then do it. I used to have that chip, and my buddy who I sold it to is happy as clam with it.

Your mobo may support it, but it may need a FW(BIOS) flash, if so - make sure to update it on the old, proven CPU. Check with your mobo vendor. I had to flash my old ASRock M3A785GXH/128M (went to same buddy with the 1090T as a package) using my old Phenom 2 X2 550 chip to new BIOS before getting the 1090T fully up and running.

AFAIK the only AM2/3 CPU faster than the 1090T is the 1100T, so what is that other chip that is also better than the 1090T? I am genuinely curious. Do you mean the x4 980? Hardly any better than the 1090T, unless gaming old games on Vista is your only focus.

Unless it is an AM3+ mobo, in which case all bets are out the window. 1090T is still a fantastic upgrade from anything AM2, but there are AM3+ options better than that even.

I did not ask to do any work for me or whatsoever so dont(sic) be rude. If you can't reply nicely then don't do it. It's supposed to be a friendly place and if it's because you can't understand me well then my excuses because my main language is french.
Neither did you specify that the price YOU saw is in CAD. I am also in Canada, and when I post on international forums, I either specify CAD or convert to USD. You did not do either. And before you complain about language, English is my third language, and I don't speak any French to boot.

The 980BE can be faster, thanks to a higher clock speed.
IF you have an AM2 CPU, that means you are using a DDR2 board. The 1090T can use DDR2, but you limit it's performance like that.

If that is the case, wouldn't the board also limit the "new" CPU by the DDR2 memory, making it worse?

I had to correct my mistake it's an AM3 cpu so the Athlon is also AM3. DDR3 memory. Asus M4N68T-M V2

I have a phenom x6 1100T they are great chips really.

The only thing holding them back is on some modern day games using newer instruction sets.

You can buy new FX 8350 for $75. Used ones for $50. The 8350 is faster than the 1090T.
Edit: Ah, AM3+ vs AM3, never mind. Wouldn't work.

But good luck finding a 980BE. You could also go the 960T route for about $40 shipped. You can risk it and try for an unlock(success rate is about 35%) or just OC the good four cores to 4+ Ghz. That's usually about the limit for air cooling.
I am amazed the 980 BE just totally disappeared, cannot find any on ebay. Is it that big a collectible?

A 1090T would work in a AM3+ board. AM3 was no different than AM4 is right now

A case could be made that the 1090T is a better processor than the FX8350. Kills it in IPC at least.

As for the 980BE disappearing I think it was just a much more limited run and all the processors made have been either picked up by enthusiasts or those systems have been retired.

Hacks my friend, i did it on cod4 for the Athlon XP

Considering there is the 970, 975, 960T.

There are games calling for a FX 6350 at minimum and FX8350 Recommended or of course Corei7

Are you honestly suprised when you ask for help and then call people rude and they don't want to help? Stop calling people rude for asking you questions and trying to help.

used them in school computers works great, perhaps same as i5. I don't think modern games from Ubisoft, EA will work on them.

Out of those processors the 960T is the most readily available and most cost effective solution. You can pick one up in the USA for about $40 shipped. That's what I usually recommend if someone wants to build an AM3 system.
$40 US is about $53 Canadian adding 2 cores for $7 seems academic.
