I was wondering if it is ok to buy a AMD965 Chip to put into my computer and if it will work. I currently have a gateway DX4200 with 4 gb of ram and an amd phenome x4 at 1.8 ghz, I just don't want to buy this new chip and not have it work. Thank you in advance,AnthonyP.S. The reason I ask is I read something about having to have the correct bios or something like that!!

As it is a prebuilt system, I am leaning toward saying no. This is because many computer builders like Gateway, Acer and Dell lock their bios so no settings can be changed, and no hardware can be changed. I'm not sure about Gateways, but it is most likely to be the same.

Thanks Chris I was thinking of buying a new chip but I will take my computer to a computer store and ask them what they think. I'm not really qualified to know what I can do and can't so I'll ask the experts. Thanks for the head up.
