You should be able to enable the 4th core on that processor and there is good overclocking potential there
.

Otherwise get the PHII 940 I'm pretty sure you can put an AM2+ processor in an AM3 board but don't quote me on that.

(AM2+ CPU) + (AM3 mobo) = no worky
(AM3 CPU) + (AM2+ mobo) = worky

It is when they have NOT released a PHII 940 for AM3 boards yet and you want cutting edge so if you want to use DDR3 you will need to get the 720 or wait until a 940 for AM3 is released.

It is all the Phenom II's are based on with out anything disabled. That and an 790FX DDR3 Mobo and GPu's of choice. 3 4890 1gb should do. The answer for AMD right now is wait to see what april 6th has in store.

i totally agree with this one..kill the itch first..

qouting this one..i roughly advise for a Quad since its an all around build if its time were talkin here i suggest wait for the new ones coming in april..seriously..


but if you insist sticking to DDR2 for a while then go for a M3A79-T deluxe and a phenom2 x3 720BE..and a 4870x2 vga card..since the performance of the AMD7 series for AM2+ and the new AM3 AMD7 series chips are just "Almost" the same..and since AMD is promising the future to its coming set of Chips late this year its still worth a wait..
