I have an Asus Sabertooth 990FX mobo.It is compatible with AM3+.Are the Bulldozers the only AM3+ processors?I want a quality processor for gaming.Is the performance going to be better than say some of the Phenom ii 900 series or 1100 series?
Any AM3 cpu will work in the AM3+ mobo. So far, it doesnt seem like the new 6+ core AM3+ cpus are worth it for gaming. The Phenom II X4 line is the best value for AMD in gaming atm (and a great value overall). I dont see the new AM3+ quad core processor on sale, but that could be as good as the PII X4 at a lower power draw. So atm, the Phenom II 955BE is the best value for gaming.
