Hello everyone,

I am looking at buying a new AMD Phenom II x6 for my computer. I have a M4N82 n980a Deluxe motherboard and it supports AM2, AM2+ and AM3 and was wondering if this CPU is combatible. I am unsure becuase my motherboard is a few years old (still good for the price) and the Phemon II x6 is new (well 2010) so i was just wondering if this will work. Thanks!

ok thanks alot. Ano that this is the CPU thread part but since you seem to be kind and answer my questions could you answer this one as well please. Is a gtx 570 worth it? i bought it a week ago and could get my money.

my resulution at the minute is 1360x1000 (somethin like that) but im hoping to get a 1900 res monitor. Ive been reading up on the gtx 570 and it supposidly can play games at that res on high. the games that i am playing at the minute is crysis, crysis 2 dx11 version, metro and so on. im getting on average 40 to 50 fps on all of them with metro 30 to 50. Would it be possible if i tell you my spec and if u cud tell me if 2 GTX 570's would bottleneck my comp?

AMD Phenom II x4 965 3.4ghz

I was just wondering if this would bottleneck my computer? If not will SLI GTX 570's Bottleneck it then?
