More than likely, you'll probably have to have an AM3+ board to run it.

I doubt it'll be ivy bridge, but even then, haswell will be out then too so that should be interesting... That's on a new chipset though.

Agreed,

That's the one thing AMD has over intel at the moment, not the processors but the chipsets they use biggrin.gif

Actually, I've got a dilemma myself. For those that upgraded, Is an FX 8350 enough of an upgrade (realistically speaking) over a Phenom II 965? Or should I hold out for steam roller considering its going to use am3+.
