Hello,

I have a phenom ii x4 920 and am using gigabyte GA-M61PMESP2 motherboard. I am using DDR-1066 as this processsor doesnt support ddr3. However this motherboard just supports HT1.0 and not HT3.0. So how is it going to effect the performance in games like Battlefield 2 and crysis and COD Mod Warfare2

uh, not at all really. All of that hardware is more than powerful enough to cope with that stuff.

so no worries, you're fine.

What video card are you running though?

First, the processor does support DDR3. It's your socket AM2 motherboard that doesn't.

When using a Phenom II on an AM2 motherboard, HT is limited to 1.0 speed. This does not have as dramatic impact on performance as one might suspect, as HT1.0 still provides ample bandwidth for the system bus. Your games will perform quite well provided you have paired this system with an equally capable GPU.

Well said. But he's right. The phenom II 920 was released for socket AM2+ before AM3 and DDR3.

It only has the pins for AM2 and AM2+.

Well damn, I read 925 in the title, yet he says 920 in the comments... BIG DIFFERENCE! LOL

Still, the same HT change applies to AM2+ CPUs in AM2 socketed boards.

Hry thanks for all the info. Am currently using a 4770 512 MB. Is this enough to play the game at 1280 *1024

Definitely. I can play it on high without specmap without AA at 1920x1080 on my radeon 3870 60+FPS. I could probably max it out at 1280x1024 with AA on my 3870. you'll have no problems with that card.
