Here is my configuration of pc.
Processor:Amd Sempron 3200+ 1.81GHz.
Display: NVIDIA Geforce6100nforce405
Ram:kingston 2GB DDR2

My PC is working working fine...but since i have installed few game like NFS carbon. Some HD videos are not playing well. Before installing game it was working very excellent. I guess the CPU 1.81GHz is too low. Should i upgrade it to a faster one. But i did not get a specific answer which processor i can plug on motherboard ZEB-N61M2. I have researched a lot and have got following suggestions.....Please advise what would be the best option including the below list.
Processors i have found.....
1. Amd Athlon X2 2.7ghz
2. AMD athlon AM2 2.0GHz

Zebronics spokesperson has suggested to stick with 3200+ AM2 socket only....and avoid AM2+ and AM3 sockets...... please suggest the best CPU.

OS: Win7

The Zebronics web site does not even list them ever making a AMD board, but I did find several articles announcing the release of you model board so it must have been a very short lived product.

The Sempron 3200+ is a early 2006 CPU so I would tend to thing there is no bios support for later CPU's without a CPU support list from the manufacturer it's going to be a trial and error experiment Dual core CPU's have a higher current draw if the motherboard has a weak power section that may explain there recommendations to stay with the lower wattage 3200+ CPU's.

My advice would be to save up some money and upgrade the CPU, Motherboard and RAM on this system.
