JoeSamo86, I would spend the extra $30 and get a 965 125W. However the only downside to that is you'll have to use the nvidia tools to configure the multiplier within the OS. It's not a huge deal but just an extra step. For the 940BE I don't think you'll have any problems. You should be golden as long as you have the 2208 bios (N2 may have to confirm). I also wouldn't worry about the power supply. You should be fine with that as well.

Good luck with your purchase

Yes there is confirmation that the x4 965 125w cpu works. If you get the x4 965 make sure to get the latest 125w version and not the 140w version. The confirmations can be seen on the OP of this club thread in the google spreadsheet. I saw the x4 940 BNIB at the Egg for $150.00 over the weekend. Looks like it went back up. Yeah you can get the X4 965 for $195.99 at the egg.

Good Luck,

How do i validate my system once i get it running so it can be on the front page?

Congrats on the new cpu. Here is a link on to how to validate your CPU. Wow, two deja vu's in two days. Now that's a new record for me.

Now i just need to get my windows 7 in the mail..4 more gigs of ram..a new video card..and boom shaka lacka! I got windows 7 ultimate for free from doing a test at lenovos website a few weeks back...just takes them 6 weeks to ship -.- lol. I have the most up to date bios installed already on my machine from asus..so i was told once i get the chip reset the cmos as im putting in the chip correct?

Yes you should clear your CMOS settings and don't use any saved cmos settings. Make usre you use a PS2 keyboard. If you want to use your cmos save settings then save some new seetings over the old saved CMOS settings after you get your new cpu all dialled in. You will have to install the Nvidia system tools application for your cpu Multiplier to function properly. We can all help you with that once you get to that point. Hmm, Free Win 7 sure wish I could have gotten in on that deal.

There is always one way to show your appriciationg but just mearly mentioning it is almost against TOS. How ever I could say this. People show grattitude towards others when they feel they have learned something or feel as if some one has helped them by clicking on the rep button affiliated w/the post you felt was helpfull.
