    I saw an unbocking vid on the CPU and on a label It stated "A75"

    ^Thats the CPU, its a FM2. It is recommended with an a75 chipset

    The mobo is an MSI FM2 A55

    ^mobo

    I'm just a little confused, they are both compatible because they have FM2 sockets right?
  3. So, I just realized it is recommended with an a75 chipset...
  4. A75 chipset is better than A55 chipset ... But A55 CHipset MSI FM2 Main Board you pick will work with that cpu.. no problem ...for $20 different I will go for A75 ..

    Only problem is I've already ordered them, but what will I be missing out on by not getting the A75? Thanks for your help by the way.
