i know the phenoms are a little more expensive my old pc had an athlon x2 i cant remember if it was a athlon 2 though
im looking for an amd motherboard that supports ddr2 and ddr3 preferably asus as alot of asus motherboards have surge protection etc
please suggest motherboards for me thanks
More aboutphenom athlon
The Phenom has the upper hand in gaming. If you are planning a crossfire setup then look for AMD 890GX or FX chipset. For single GPU AMD 870 or 880G chipset. Those boards will support DDR3 ram. Boards supporting both DDR2 and DDR3 can not run both types at the same time.
is that motherboard any good im always a bit cautious of prices like £30 for this mobo yet u get some for £400 is this worth buying or will it just break on me
The motherboard should not break but it has a low range chipset and I personally would get a board with the chipset's I listed in my first post. Well not having L3 cache makes it a fake Phenom that will perform on level with Athlon II at the same core speed.
have u got a link to those boards u posted earlier cos im new to this stuff
