You were already answered, and AM3 CPUs work with AM2+ boards but not the other way around. m 0 l clayed21085 November 6, 2009 1:08:43 AM not really, now I'm asking if I only had the option of an am2+ processor not an am3 , what are my options, this is the last question on this subject for me. m 0 l Related resources Best Processor Upgrade for Am2 socket - Forum Best processor for AM2+ - Forum Best processor for price AM2+ - Forum Best AM2+ processor - Forum Best AM2+, 95W AMD X4 Processor? - Forum Can't find your answer ?

Why would you be restricted only to AM2+ processors? m 0 l clayed21085 November 6, 2009 1:41:05 AM because it's an generic board (nettle 3) and most likely does not have an bios update for a am3 cpu. I might just have to kick down and get a new motherboard. m 0 l loneninja a c 83 à CPUs November 6, 2009 1:58:42 AM Best dual core would be the X2 7850, and the best quad core would be the X4 9650(9750 if you can find one of the rare 95W versions, they were exclusive to oem) m 0 l someguy7 a b à CPUs November 6, 2009 2:03:42 AM Chances are if the board can run the best am2+ cpu it can run the am3 cpus. Just stop this entire guessing game. Go to board makers website and look it up. Or email them. m 0 l clayed21085 November 6, 2009 2:26:09 AM loneninja, is this what you're talking about.......http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite... m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
