Phenom II X4 965 BE Vs. A10-5800K BE - Page 3

post #21 of 41
well I would say that you should wait for the 7790, should release after a couple of days or so, it will be a bit more expensive but it has nice performance as it lays nicely between the 7850 and the 7790.
You could also go for a 7770, which is a pretty awesome card on the lower end spectrum

Is this a good motherboard for over clocking? I want to get to 4.2ghz on my phenom II x4 965

Terrible board. As I linked earlier use this
www.overclock.net/amd-motherboards/946407-amd-motherboard-power-phase-list.html

It's your buyer's guide.

Cheapest I'd recommend is a 970a-ud3 or a biostar alternative that has a larger vrm heatsink.

You're here on amazon. 99% of the population is buying motherboards because they drop a processor in there don't think about it. VRMs are important. Here's why. Especially with PII's

I'm assuming you want to overclock and you care about doing that without motherboard being a limit.

The 965 is a great chip on a budget and I'm not just being biased cause that's what I'm using. One good thing is AMDs longevity with their sockets, the AM3+ board will last a while and you can always upgrade your cpu later to an 8350 or another similar chip and improve your system that way. In most new games you can see tolerable performance on mid to mid-high settings.

Can someone answer me this. Lets say I go with an AM3 processor and use an AM3+ board, will there be any features of the AM3+ board that will be locked to only AM3+ processors?

No. And if i'm wrong on this, it must be a feature no one uses / cares about it because I've yet to hear anything of the sort.
