Mobo + CPUHelp.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello all,

I am planning to make a PC. I am quite certain about which Processor i am going for. Maybe the AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+ (Not great, but good enough for me). I need someone to explain why they have nicknames such as Manchester, Toledo Etc. I'm confused about that. AND How i can tell if the motherboard for that certain processor which in case is a 939 socket. How do i tell which is high end and which is low end. Take Asus for an example please.

Hope to hear soon...

Don't get the 3800. Get the 3700. I've seen some people who have gotten the 3700 to 3.0ghz. It's a MUCH greater overclocker than the 3800.
