      Currently running  a motherboard model number AMD FX 6100. On new a website where you purchase PC parts it said this motherboard is capable of....

       

      4+1 Phase CPU Power design for AMD high TDP 125W CPU support

       

      Does this mean i will have to settle for a processor running lower than 125 Watts? i was looking to upgrade to this one

       

      AMD FX-9590 Vishera 8-Core 4.7 GHz Socket AM3+ 220W FD9590FHHKWOF Desktop Processor - Black Edition - Newegg.com

       

      but its 220watts, so it wont run on my motherboard? Runner up is this one AMD Processor FX-8350 Black Edition Vishera 8-Core 4.0GHz (4.2GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 125W D8350FRHKBOX - Newegg.com  which runs at 125watts, so would i have to get the FX 8350 rather thant he FX 9590? Thank you all for your support.
