what are you trying to imply? that if i purchase a fx-8320 it will be compatible with my motherboard and not bottleneck the gtx 680?

Just pointing out that an AM3+ cpu can work on an AM3 mobo.
I would say that it will not work on your mobo, Because there is no beta bios for it.

Assuming the chip overclocks well, it may be enough to push your card to full usage on the games you play. A cheap and probably better alternative would be a M5A99X EVO mobo and a 6300/8320.

the 1055t can easily be overclocked to 3.4ghz, which should be enough if you play BF3
the 1100t would definitely be good smile.gif

here's a review on the HD7970, shows the CPU scaling on multiple high end games.
you can extrapolate how your GTX680 would behave based on these scores.

http://www.guru3d.com/articles_pages/radeon_hd_7970_cpu_scaling_performance_review,9.html

BF3 is very multi-core efficient... you dont need all that "power" PER core, as long as you have multiple cores..
At 1920x1080 and beyond, the processor works less, and GPU works more.. decreasing any bottleneck (if any) on any well-threaded games(most new games)

When I had my 1055T at 3.6 it kept my cf 6950s working. More so than my 975 at 4.2. 1055t is just fine with a little overclock.

If it serves of anything, PlanetSide 2 runs like crap on my system (ultra textures, high everything except shadows) unless I run the processor at at least 3.9GHz.

So if you plan of picking a Thuban, make sure you squeeze it at least to 4GHz, otherwise that GTX680 will be on vacation.

I don't want to remember that POS 790X chipset, it was horrible. So much improvement did i notice when switched to 890GX, and now 990X even better. All on Gigabyte motherboards. Yes, you need a 970 chipset at least for FX brand CPU. Don't go lower.
