Fry's has it for 180.00? Is this a boxed retail unit or OEM?

So Am3 is coming out and so is the 945 phenom. Will the 945 be Am2+ and compatible with our board. Also with these new chips how quickly are people expecting to see the 940 price fall...?

I'm hoping to upgrade soon, I have a Hiper 580 PSU and am looking at the 940 Phenom with 2x2gb 1066 I've done psu calcs on various places and get different results. Do you think my PSU could handle these upgrades..?

Cool .. I'm in Az so I'm not sure if the deal is here also. I think that price and the Newegg price are pretty similar though because I don't think they charge you sales tax online.

I think your system will handle it fine. Don't know alot about that particular brand but you shouldn't have a problem as long as you don't SLI a high end video card.

I didn't have any luck using the utility through Windows, so I always use a USB flash drive to do my BIOS flash and do it with EZ Flash in the BIOS.
As long as there isn't a power outage, you can always recover from a bad flash. It's when the power is interrupted that you get dead mobos. You only need about a minute, so chances are, nothing bad will happen
Always reset the BIOS to defualt settings, restart, and then flash.
Good luck.

BTW I vote for the PhII 940. You will love this chip

Thank you

N2G
Word. lol I think when i pickup the phII, im gonna make a call to asus through my work and try to get them to send me another bios chip with 2202 already on it, that way i have one of both bioses and no worries if i want to run one or the other.


EDIT:
Hey N2, on the bios flashing... i have had the best luck booting from a cd burnt using a win98 boot floppy w/ cd rom support. Use an ide cd rom ONLY, burn awdflash on the cd along with whatever versions of the bioses for your board that you like. You might also want to create install batch files for each bios.

Heres the cmd line input i use when using awdflash, it hasnt served me wrong and it will let you downgrade from a newer bios.

awdflash biosname.bin /py /sn /f

Py=program yes
Sn=save no
F=flash
Cc=clear cmos
R=reboot

Might want to add the /cc to the 2xxx bioses.
