  1. The Phenom II X4 945 has a lower TDP of 95W, which will run cooler, which is probably what you'd want.
  2. The 940 is an AM2+ CPU, the 945 is AM3. As Lmeow mentioned it also runs cooler and uses less power. Big win for the 945.

    Thanks guys, 945 it is

    The 940 will only work with DDR2, so therefore 945 if your using DDR3.


    I thought the 945 is also backwards compatible with DDR2 ram ???? o_O

    It is, he was saying you need the 945 if your using DDR3.
  6. +1 for the 945.

    DDR3 doesn't really apply to this build since the motherboard linked to uses DDR2 RAM.
  7. ooooo, I got this thread mixed up with my previous thread...... :lol:
    I forgot to mention that I'll be using my old DDR2 ram...
    Thanks guys, 945 it is
