Hyper Transport Speed combatibility with a Mobo?

I have been looking at motherboards and CPUs on newegg, and noticed that motherboards go either for 1000ghz Hyper Transport or 2600MHz Hyper Transport. i havent looked for anything more expensive because I need a system within a low price range.

now the CPUs that I was looking are all listed at 4000mhz. examples,

does this mean that the CPU won't be compatible with the motherboard and id have to get a CPU that is either 1000 or 2600mhz HS? Thanks.

  1. I recommend the biostar MCP6p M2+ for $49.99 with free shipping. I've used that board twice and tried both bios versions. It works fine with the regor cpus. Biostar has also processed one rma on a different board fast, in only 9 days. They also answered my email tech questions within 24 hours.

    even if im getting this mobo for playing games like World of Warcraft? it seems like a cheap board with a video card inside of it.

    ill check out the reviews for it though. thanks

    p.s. you haven't answered my original question.

    Hyper transport is just the speed of the buses on the motherboard, it has no effect on the CPU speed as the CPU is a multiplier off of a 200MHz base clock, unlike intel CPUs where the CPU speed is a multiplier off of the FSB clock which is different for different processors and motherboards. A higher hyper transport clock would improve bandwidth to other components in the system but it wont make much of a difference.
