Thats what im hoping. Ive been running the game with my old 5000+ and have yet to have it lockup.

I have had issues int the past with Nvidia drivers doing the same thing though.. But im assuming that this isnt driver related. Based on the fact im using an older driver.. The newer ones gave me issues.

Thats a weird thing with some nvidia drivers, on my internet pc the latest ones for my graphics card dont work but the version thats about 2 yrs old does, same thing with my other pc as well screen goes all strange like someone punched the lcd!! it could also be the actual northbridge/chip itself if it turns out your cpu isnt the problem and in that case it might mean new board but seeing as the 5000 is running fine still think it points towards cpu, good luck anyway man hopefully you can rma without to many issues, tiger

I don't have it but the 965 will work on this board according to MSI CPU support list. Just be sure to get the 125watts version as opposed to the 140watts. Be sure to update your BIOS to the latest version and you should be set.

As for 1066 memory, you can pick any. But be aware that the cpu will only support up to 2 sticks of 1066.

Hope this helps, and good luck!

yeah i read that bout the ram but i could get 2x4gb sticks couldnt i? also do you have to run one in each of the ram channels (ie 1 in the green and 1 in the orange) may be better and more stable sticking with 8gb of ddr2 and oc a bit then?

So the 965
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103727

Can be used with this board? I looked at the list and did not see it on there. I saw simular but not exactly worded the same. Also does anyone know how fast I can get this CPU to go it's 3.4GHZ stock...This would be a big upgrade compaired to my Kuma at 3.0GHZ O/C now..Any help would be appreciated

the 140w ones cant be used with this board but 125w ones can thats prob why it aint on the list cos board only supports 125w cpus, reckon you could easily get to 4-4.? with one of those! as i said earlier thinking of getting one myself but may go with the 955BE cos it aint already maxed out on the oc front and may be more stable, not sure! 965's look damn nice tho licking my lips in anticipation already (but my wallets not!!) tiger
