    thanks dude

    (May need to flash BIOS to F3D IIRC for this to work)

    i dont know how to do that...and i dont know what it means
  3. It simply means that you'll have to update the BIOS on the motherboard to the latest version. Normally it should come with the latest BIOS, but if it doesn't you can either ask GIGABYTE to flash it or just buy a different motherboard which does support it - the 890GX and FX chipsets should.
  4. Would this work as a cheap gaming build as well?
  5. If you were going to do it as a gaming build, you'd need a better video card. Maybe instead of the six core chip, pick up an Athlon II x3 or x4 and get a 5670 or better.
  6. That and pickup a 500w+ psu.
