im trying to find good prices on phenom 945s but that seems non existent. even ebay rarely has those processors. so im thinking my next bet is to get a 955. however my mobo cpu support list only lists up to the 945. what happens if i drop in something greater than that?

got an asus m2nsli deluxe. cpu support list here:

i figured thats the case. i dont want to do any upgrades as that mean ill have to change out my ram, etc. trying to keep costs low. but i figure i can get a crossfire mobo (instead of the sli one i have) that is comparable to the current one i have but one that can support a cheaper, more current processor like the 955 or above.

only if newegg gets it back in stock. current prices equal that of more current processors! ick.
