Do you think my Mobo would like a 9850 BE?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
As you see my mobo in my sig . I was having thoughts of getting a Phenom in 2 Months, But I would only get one if I could get a decent overclock out of it otherwise I may as well not bother. What do you guys think?

I don't know too much about AMD boards at the moment sorry (apart from the fact that 790FX and -MVP are good ) but if you get a 9850 Black Edition you could get pretty far (3.2Ghz+). To be honest though I'd upgrade other parts of your rig first like your PSU and graphics.

Alot of guys here are having trouble getting past 2.8 ghz, the 7900 is doing ok until ATI 4K series, Silverstone 400W should still power a phenom.
