Upgrade

I am currently using an AMD FX 8320 CPU in an Asus M5 A97 R2.0 motherboard.

Is there a currently available CPU that would improve the performance of my system?

Re: Upgrade

Here is your Asus Motherboard's CPU SUPPOT LIST: https://www.asus.com/SupportOnly/M5A97_R20/HelpDesk_CPU/

See which is better than the one you currently have. But to tell you truth the difference between the various FX 83xx is not that big of a difference. It really wouldn't be worth spending money.

I would rather upgrade to a Ryzen Motherboard - AM4 Socket Motherboard if it is within your budget. But the FX 8xxx series processor are a very good processor series.
