Can someone explain the following i am after a new motherboard for my athlo x3 435,

cant afford and added Graphics card just yet due to budget however i understand that the 785g chipset is the upgrade from the very good 780g?

however this model used by MSI 770 ?

on microdirect the have the same chipset number eg

785g uses sb710

then there is a 770 that uses the same sb 710?

is this the same on board graphics???????

if not which is better at games / HD

The most significant item you should be aware of is the ability of some boards to unlock disabled cores with the 710 or 750 southbridge chipset. Otherwise, I would select a board based on your budget and case size: 770 is atx only while the 785 can be found on both atx and micro atx boards. Some cpus won't remain stable when you unlock their disabled core, and some overclock better by leaving the disabled cores alone. You'll just have to try it.

No, the onboard graphics is part of the Northbridge, which is the 770 or 785 part of the model number. The south bridge (710, 750, etc.) is mainly for IO and other tasks. So to answer your question, no, the 770 board does not have onboard graphics at all.

Go for AMD 785G + SB750 chipset, that is the most recent/modern one. The AMD 770 does not have onbaord video, the 785G does.

785's don't come with SB750's, only SB710's.

However, there is a TON of variations of the 785g, so you're pretty much guaranteed to find one to fit your budget.
