Im looking to upgrade my HTPC CPU to handle video transcoding to an XBox 360 Media Center Extender. I have an older ASUS mobo (AMD M3N78-EM) with an AMD X2 4000+, which is definitely not capable of doing so.
According to ASUS product page for my mobo (CPU Support List @ http://uk.asus.com/Motherboards/AMD_AM2Plus/M3N78EM/
) it can also handle a handful of AM3 CPUs. Im looking for suggestions of one thats supported that is capable of transcoding. Furthermore, hoping to keep it under $100 if at all possible, but if not, willing to pay a bit more.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!
