But if you are planning for a moderate overclock, then even this would suffice... GIGABYTE GA-MA790X-UD4P AM3/AM2+/AM2 AMD 790X http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... But I would suggest you to try and sell the CPU, mobo and RAM and then get the new CPU, RAM and Mobo all AM3 - DDR3... But its your call... Share crappyday September 17, 2009 4:01:34 PM hmm like the asus but it takes DDR2 shouldnt i be looking for a DDR3 board would this be the same thing but DDR3 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... m 0 l Can't find your answer ?

And if you are planning for an overclock, I would suggest the 955 over the 965...It is not worth the extra $45... m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
