ok i am planning to get the phenom ii x4 955 but dont know which motheboard to get. i have read many many reviews about different motherboards but i dont know which one to get. many reviews said that the Asus m4a79xtd evo was a good motheboard for the x4 955 since its easy to overclock and all. i want to know whether the m4a79xtd evo will have the current bios for the phenom II x4 955. here is the motherboard link i want to get
The FX is pretty much the exact same board as the GX, except it has 4 PCIe x16 graphics slots. If you're a big gammer, and you'll use them, it may be worth it. If you're not, then it's probably a waste of $$.
The socket is the same. The difference is the pins and memory controller.
