AMD PHENOM II X4 955 BE

Hello, I will soon build my first system and i would need some advise.

At first i wanted to buy Amd athlon II x4 620 but than I decided to buy something better for gaming and i came across this:
AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition Deneb 3.2GHz 4 x 512KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache Socket AM3 125W Quad-Core Processor - Retail
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103674&cm_re=AMD_PHENOM_II_X4_955-_-19-103-674-_-Product

But im on budget and i really cant afford to spent too much money on expensive mobo so my question is would this processor work in this budget motherboard:
ASUS M4A785TD-V EVO AM3 AMD 785G HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard - Retail
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131398&cm_re=M4A785TD-V_EVO-_-13-131-398-_-Product

More about phenom
  1. The Asus website gives full details on combatability and spec on their motherboards.

    http://uk.asus.com/product.aspx?P_ID=fcsXWSxnhzZE9rnR&templete=2

    Go on the US site if you need to. According to their specs, its compatible.
  2. So that means that it will work with this mobo with its stock bios?
  3. Phenom IIX4 955 (HDZ955FBK4DGM),3.2GHz,125W,rev.C3,SocketAM3,Quad-Core ALL
    0501

    you need bios 0501 according to that site above
  4. Great processor choice :) I <3 p2 series, just wish they drew less watts >: (!
  5. But how can i know what bios it will be if i haven't even bought it yet? >_>

  7. well if it isn't guaranteed to work with cpu with its stock bios than it would be great if someone could recomend one that will.
  8. You can flash the BIOS to version 0501 if need be. I have the M3N-HT and had to flash it for my 955 to be recognized correctly but it would boot up to perform the flash.
  9. oh right i didn't know that, i thought if it didn't had the right bios it wouldn't boot up.
    thanks for clearing this out :)
