Looking for a fast and power efficient processor
I got a GA-MA785GM-US2H AMD version 1.1 Motherboard, I want to upgrade it for less power consumption. At the moment, I am using this processor AMD Phenom 9600 Quad –Core BE, its CPU usage is up to 95 watts. I was thinking of getting a Phenom II X6 1065T and reduce its speed to 2.6 GHZ because its CPU usage is also 95 watts. If I do that, will it reduce its power usage? Moreover, can I upgrade it again whenever I need to do stuff that needs high speed like video conversions? I was also thinking of using the 910e processor, its CPU usage is 65 watts but the speed is a bit lower than the other processors. How do I work on the processors to get a good piece that will fit my requirements or what do I need to put together to get a perfect piece that is fast and at the same time use less power?
