Sorry about that.

I meant to say with the 9600.

Thanks for all the tips guys, but I was impatient waiting or a response so I decided to take it back and just wait a bit and Upgrade to a Icore 7 system.

I did try everything except I read earlier that you can just move the jumper to reset the bios instead of doing that and taking out the battery.

If I were to get a 945, would I still have to do that Bios stuff & Performance tool settings in Windows?

I was told that Icore 7 Intel CPU's are a lot better then anything AMD has right now, how much of an upgrade would it be to go a 945 to Icore 7?

No matter what I do it will not post the 945 anymore. Sad but true.

Yes the 945 works without the nvtools.
It's best to remove the battery too.
It would be a big upgrade to an I7.

Sorry we could not get you up and running.
Something must have broke when you lost the pin.

Having some temp issues with my new chip. Running at 48-50 idle which cannot be good.

Anyway, the real question is this: if I buy a new graphics card (say a 570) will this board hamper its performance enough for me to think about getting a new one?

You might want to consider an after market cooler for the cpu.
Something like this http://www.scan.co.uk/products/xigma...uad-core-ready.

Does Cool and Quiet work for you?

No it will not hamper performance.
It will be a huge performance jump from the 8800gtx,you will be amazed

Good luck

The GTX 460 would be a good fit for your rig.
They are dropping in price too.

Good luck

Hello,

My first post here, just wanted to ask before I buy.

Is the Phenom II X4 840 fully compatible with the M2N-SLI? I know it's not on the cpu compatibilty list but the 820 is and the 9 series upto 945 which is near impossible to buy outside of ebay.

I would like a fast quad-core that I don't have to manualy mess around with to get it to work.

Cheers for any help, just don't want to buy a new chip and have to mess about to get it to work.

Also I have updated the BIOS to 5001, no problems besides a slightly slower boot.
