Well that seems to almost settle the score, thanks reflex99. But If the MSI Fuzion has quality phasers, would it not be a better buy considering features and small price difference?

I think that you might have confuused the 870a fuzion, with the 870a fuzion power edition

The vanilla fuzion is a pretty poor board

Defintiely. I'd get M4A88TD-V EVO or M4A87TD EVO over that, or M4A79XTD EVO if you don't mind a lil vDroop and no SATAIII/USB3

Just out of curiosity, how is the ASUS M4A785-M? It's what I use in my HTPC along with a Athlon 7850. It is certainly more than enough for that chip but I may want to upgrade that chip someday.

Edit: I just saw Reflex's link. I'm guessing this mobo is simply the DDR2 version of the M4A785T-M.

Woa misinformation ahoy!

Chokes are not capacitors, they're inductors. The exact opposite of capacitors.

Little dumbed down about MOSFETS; could of at least said that it's an acronym.

Metal Oxide Field Effect Transistor.

Carry on.

I'm just going to trust that my mobo is a quality board that can take the 133watts of my cpu :]

right now just running 1.4v 3.4ghz because I lowered my fanspeeds :]

Truth, chokes are inductors.

However, the "exact opposite" comment requires some clarification(or un-"dumbing down" as the quoted poster so eloquently put it). Both inductors and capacitors store energy, magnetically and statically, respectively. The difference between the two lies in their ability to filter certain types of current. Inductors block AC while capacitors block DC.

I'm an Electrical Engineer. I deal directly with Theory. On paper, they are exact opposite.
