Hello, this motherboard has chipset 760G , which I read is not really good for the fx 6300.
Here are the specs: http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/M5A78LM_LX3/#specifica...
Given that I won't overclock, will I notice any difference between this motherboard and the m5a97 (970 chipset) motherboard?

Also, I don't need Crossfire.

Thanks.

m5a97 (970 chipset) < This is the better one for that chip.

Yes but it costs more than double, at least where I live, the m5a97 is 188USD and the M5A78L-M LX3 is 85USD (yes, it's expensive here). So I wonder if I would notice any difference between the two to see if it's worth. I also don't plan on upgrading anytime soon after this.
Thank you for answering.

Yes it will work , it's on the CPU supported list.

I know it will work, what I want to know if the difference (100USD difference) is really worth it given that I won't do overclocking (and I also don't need other stuff, like 4xDIMM)
So, solely on the cpu performance, will I notice any difference?
Thanks.

It will run the CPU , but make sure it has the right BIOS , the 970 board would perform better.

I would get the 970 even though it's more.

none of you guys answered his question.

ddg7, What did you end up getting? because i'm planning to get the same motherboard with the same processor and im wondering if it will perform ok not overclocking the processor and without crossfire and all that things the 9xx series chipset has

The 970 Chip Set is part of the FSB or local bus and controls the speed of the Motherboard! The Chip set used to be called and sometimes is called the North and South Bridge. If you get a 760 Chip Set your transfer rate will slow and the potential of the CPU will be slower than normal! It is a bottleneck in the system; as well as could be your SDRAMs speed known as physical memory cards! Cl (Clocking ) should be low and speed should be high on any component on the Motherboard!

im actually under the same predicament. which board did you end up choosing? im using the same processor, cant decide between those two boards, as one is twice as expensive.
