What I have seen are a lot of build-to-orders for Systemax Ascent a760 machines. I can't seem to find out what the AMD cpu is in the builds or what other AMD cpus are compaible with this chipset. Can't anyone help me????

More about : 760g chipset

What web site are you looking at ? With a build-to-order ad there should be a place to "configure" or "customize" options somewhere. This happens to be the customize page for the Compusa/Tigerdirct ad: http://www.compusa.com/applications/searchtools/configd...



Chuckcb: If you look at all the sites that offer the build-to-order (circuitcity, tigerdirect, bestbuy, etc), they don't list the processor type in the machines; it a stock listing of 'options.' When I attempted to email circuitcity, they said they don't know and have limited info from Systemax. When I go to the Systemax website, they don't even list the model number. The only specific is the mobo chipset, 760g. So what are it's capabilities. None of the webites list the mobo using that chipset. I don't like buying something I can't upgrade.

The circuit city configuration wizard show the MSI 760GM-E51 mATX as thee only option. (same as comp & tiger)

Here is the msi product page for it: http://www.msi.com/product/mb/760GM-E51.html#/?div=Over...

And here is the specific cpu list for that mb: http://www.msi.com/product/mb/760GM-E51.html#/?div=CPUS...


Chuckcb: Tnx for the info. I was rooting around for a vendor with NO Az prescence (sales tax), an I found CompUsa. Their build added four cpu options: two dual- and two quad-core options. I did not see them in the curcuitcity build.

Problem solved. Now all I have to do is plunk down the $1k for the machine with Office Pro on it. It looks like a good business config. I hope to be doing some program development on it, so speed during compile is very useful.

760G itself can support any of AMD's processors, it's up to the specific manufacturer what they give support for in the BIOS. Also as 760G is a budget chipset, many of the boards only support 95W processors, so none of the higher end 125W chips work.
