What processor will my motherboard support?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
My current build has a AMD 780V + SB700 chipset and i was wondering what sort of processor i could replace the AMD Phenon x2 545 with, i was looking at something around about a triple or quad core but want to know my limits of what it will support.

Thanks

Which one Does it have, AM2, AM2+ or AM3?

Nvm. Should support PhIIX4's and PhIIX6's, might need bios update though.

Yes it will support it.

Although, My 2cents would go to upgrading to a PhIIX4 9xx.
