1. The CPU is no good, stay away from the first Phenoms.
2. DDR2 is slowly becoming outdated.

1.) The Phenom I x4s that end in "50" are the later revision that fixed the TLB bug that gave the Phenoms their bad name. It's an ok processor, but it is near the bottom of the quad core heap.

2.) The RAM doesn't suck because it's DDR2. It sucks because it's generic 667MHz RAM. DDR2 800 and 1066 are just fine.



Do your research before spouting things like that.

Burning books is like burning bras; after the adrenaline rush of the symbolic moment wears off all you're left with is a pile of ashes and unsupported boobs.

They can't even label the Motherboard correctly, says it's an AM3, but supports DDR2. I'd be scared to order that and have DDR2 and an AM2+ CPU and end up getting a board that has an AM3 socket which won't fit either of those, lol.

Either way it's a horrible deal, Phenom I are things not to touch especially the 9650.

EDIT: Newegg labels it correctly as an AM2+ motherboard, lol. TigerDirect FAIL!
