My only complaint about my board is that it's not PCIe 2.0 so I'm pretty much stuck with my 8800
I did a quick search over at asus and it looks like your board will support the 125w BE version x4 9950 Phenom cpu seen HERE , HERE & HERE

well the 6000+ i have in now is 125W. Frankly I never considered wattage when I picked it, it was my first and noobish build. But I haven't had problems with it. The phenom 2s are cheaper than I anticipated, so if/when I do upgrade i'll probably just do a new build to support that. But for now i'm very happy with my M2N deluxe. I never really spent much time OCing, but I think now I really want to push it. I heard my chip doesn't OC too well but even 3.4 or so would be nice.

btw, did you add me to the club list? I'd like to join

Edit: I just looked further on the ASUS site and it looks like the M2N-SLI Deluxe does not support 140W. But it does support 125W. So if I went phenom I couldn't do the 140W 9950 BE. Could go with the regular 9950 125W, or one of the 65W models would be even better (but more expensive last i checked)

Sounds like your gonna have a nice system eiter way.

I have been kind of hoping that I could use the phenom II x4 940 BE in the m2n32 board but it don't look to promissing ATM. We'll see...
I'll be getting a 4870 for my birthday and I'll put in the DFI board. Then hopefully down the road when the 4870x2's become cheaper, I'll CF one of them bad boys with the 4870. And thanks for the heads up, its my first dfi

I'm sorry if I missed your request the first time around. you have been added to the roster. Welcome a-board.

If I'm not mistaken I believe the 140w was the first x4 9950 cpu amd produced. It ran hot so they shrank the die and lowered the temps and wattage requirements and this second version is the BE of 125W. Any way I'm still praying to be able to use the Phenom II x4 940 BE it's selling for 299.00 at tiger tirect so I'll wait for prices to drop or I may just miss out on the whole 940 BE bandwagon.

Any time. I hope Nvidia comes out with a new chipset here pretty soon to support the Phenom II x4 940. What the heck I don't need that many cores any way. It's not like I run my pc all day rippin dvd's cd's and download all day long 24 7.

Oh duh. I never saw the 125W black edition of the 9950. There are two 9950BE on newegg, one 125w one 140w.
now you revived the upgrade bug in me! lol.

Heck that makes me a little suspicious. Before you click on the buy button make sure you do the amd cpu check over at there web sight. type in the cpu PIB # and make sure it's a 125w cpu. Look Here for CPU Part #'s

Here is the RAM: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820161028

I volted it to as high as I was comfortable with. The RAM began to get exponentially hotter at some point, i think 2.5v or so, and I turned the settings back down. ;-P I only hear horror stories about over-volting RAM to that point, as in "the RAM goes bad after a few months of high-voltage pounding".

I can get higher FSB clock speeds if I loosen RAM timings, but performance seems to suffer. What do you think of all this?

From the review on new egg you should be able to sqweez a little performance out of those ram sticks. Two things I notice right off the bat.

If your trying to get a lot of performance out of your ram you may want to only use two sticks. You may want to try something like 2x2048 of pc8500 which will perform better then 4x1024 pc6400. Of course you could always try using only two sticks of what you already have to see what if any performance gains you can achieve. Useually having only 2 ram slots populated will allow the ram to out-perform having all 4 ram slots populated. That's for overclocking purposes any way. If your running bone stock clocks, timings etc then more ram is usually the way to go.

Other thing is the 32 bit vs 64 bit OS thing. Your system will not use all of the ram you have right now do to the 32 bit limitations. That goes for vista as well unless you use service pack 1. I have never used vista so I'm not very well school'd on that os. In any case if you would like to use an amount of ram over 3 gig efficiently then u should think about switching over to a x64 bit os. Just my two cents.

Thank you. Those are good points (both which I had considered and then forgotten!)

My mobo supports up to 2GB of RAM per slot, with a max stock speed of DDR2-800.

How do you think 2 slots with 2GB in each slot compares to only 1GB per slot (concerning overclock-ability)? I think that 4GB in 2 slots compared to 4GB in four slots would be better, yes? -Thanks
