Get an FX-8350 (most can clock to 5ghz) and you are golden. If you have a good one it blows the socks of I5 3570K and if you have a good overclocker it can even beat some I7 CPU's in gaming and some other stuff
Sorry the FX processor will never be as good in gaming. Why? the answer is simple games don't use all 8 cores, well most dont. A overclocked I7 be it a 3770k, or a 4770k simply blows away the Fx processors.
On another note. The 990fx UD3 rev 4.0 supports the 9590 and the 9370 FX processors. The Ud5 rev 3.0 supports it them as well. Of course the Rev 3.0 of the UD7 supports them as well.
So basically all the new Revision boards support the new processors. Will the older revision boards support any new AM3+ processors? probably not. Its not the TDP which is the issue, its Gigabyte's Bios support.Edited by ebduncan - 8/26/13 at 12:07am
