So you mean in theory its possible to build a rig using this, then swap out bulldozer say a year on or so because AM3+ supports both?
Also, just how outdated is this architecture and how will it fare gaming wise over the next 2-3 years
Is 3.5GHz the max OC I could reach in theory?
And it's not that outdated just yet, the only problem with the Phenom II's are there IMC's, there just not as good as Intel's IMC, until Bulldozer comes out to change everything
Get the Crosshair, and upgrade the CPU on the mobo in the future or something
