Uhhh, have a dip in the overclocking options and see how this board treats your 4600+. Should be better than your previous board. Not really sure what else right now other than making sure you're running the latest chipset drivers and BIOS update for it. ASUS has worked out a lot of kinks with the M3A series, so it's pretty important you update the BIOS (preferably before dipping in there to overclock).

The M3A32-MVP will come with a utility on the disc called "ASUS Update". You can use it to find, download and install the latest BIOS from inside Windows.

The AsRock may not have such a utility, you may need to do it the "old" way via floppy disk and all that.

Its safer to update the bios from within the bios itself using a usb drive. windows updaters arent always stable (most of the time, but not always, and *IMO* not worth the risk)

I dont mean to barge in your thread but since we are on the subject of this board. Im getting it too and im also putting a phenom 9600 agena 2.3 am2+ with a 8800GT XXX ddr3 with pci-e 2.0. My question is should i just go back to an athlon 64x2 6000+ and save money on the proccessor, or stick with this one. And have you all heard of any probs with the Sli on this board. And the OS is gonna be windows xp pro for now. Thanks for help in advance

Throw a 9850 BE on it...

Its a DDR2 MB.. so unless you already have the DDR3 I would buy some good DDR2.

So in other words a Gddr3 Graphics card will not work at all? Or is it just not a good idea. I also am getting Corsair Dominator ddr2 1066 pc2 8500.

EDIT!!!!!

YOur Hd 3870's are ddr4 arent they.

Nvm on question then. Do you like them with this mobo?

Does the board take advantage of ddr4 at all?

Or do the gCards work so called "independent" so that it doesnt matter?

Also lol what do you think is better the Crucial ballistics tracers? Or Corsair Dominator

This is not an nVidia chipset, SLI is not supported. You can Crossfire X up to 4 ATI video cards or use one (including a GX2) nVidia card. Right now SLI support on non nVidia chipsets is proprietary to oem's like HP etc.
