Upgrading my CPU

Consider the Super Socket 8,which is a AMD upgrade CPU
You will need to take in consideration the motherboard and the bus speed and the biggest and best performance may only be approximately 10 to 20 percent performance increase if that.
All components have to mesh togeather to see any significant increase.
