Change "AMD A6-6400K APU with Radeon(tm) HD Graphics" with "AMD FX 8-Core Black Edition FX-8350" │Mainboard: MSI A68HM-P33 V2 (MS-7895)

As my title says, I want to change the older "AMD A6-6400K APU with Radeon(tm) HD Graphics" with the new "AMD FX 8-Core Black Edition FX-8350"

to gain a better gaming and rendering performence. I heard good resonances about the FX-8 Core Black Edition so I wanted to spend 184EUR for it

as a Christmas Gift to my own

Even tho I got a lot knowledge how to use and control a PC, I've less knowledge about the inside, like Technical Stuff.

Just some basic Stuff.

To not make a mistake and buy a new Chip and then find out, I cannot build it into my PC,

I want to make sure I can actually use it.

More technical stuff about my Chip and Mainboard:

Short answer is no...  Just go to your board's website and look at the CPU support list:

Nope! Different Sockets.The best you can do on that Motherboard is an A10-7870K.
