AMD X2 Build - Page 5

post #41 of 58
Thread Starter 
did mention earlier about being unable to go AM2 as it will be too expensive. also i have taken a look on the Abit website and it doesn't say it will support Opteron it just says it supports dual core athlon 64 and FX CPU, doesnt say any models or anything but it doesnt say opteron, i am just hoping someone has applied the same combination together and have gotten some results.

Look in the bios downloads for the mobo then it will tell you if it is able to take it

nope
post #44 of 58
As far I cuold see, the ABIT website just does not mention the word 'Opteron' at all... I don't know it will work, but lean toward that it will.

Well if it can support a dual core then it must be able to support an opty since they were made before x2's

thats a valid point, i will ring up tomorrow the company i wil be buying both of them from, then hopefully they will have them instock for me to buy them but if anyone can please keep trying to find out, bet to find out then have incompatible hardware.

ok i have rang them, they are unable to tell me if they are compatible, but the person who i spoke to said if they were incompatible then, i can send back the motherboard. which not bad i think... so maybe its somthing i can look at and maybe order withing the next few days.

Abit UL8 motherboard isnt compatible with opteron
post #49 of 58
The Abit should work Fine with he Opty series ( However your post states it isnt..Pitty ). However a BIOS update maybe needed to support perhaps a later one or to improve overall performance. An Opteron 165 IMO would be better than a 3800X2. Not to mention the 3800 X2 has pretty much ceased production and is very hard to get in most places.

When it comes to your RAM get a 2x1gb Kit as 4x512 will hurt performance overall.

yep i am going to upgrade ram most likely, but not yet, i want to get myself a motherboard which will take a opteron and has AGP capabilities.

such as the ASROCK 939Dual-VSTA
