No thata still an Intel board and takes second generation core i3,i5 & i7 CPUs and Pentium GXXX. If you want a 955BE you need an AM3 or AM3+ board

Yes it can even take 2 of them. If you have not already bought the 955BE you could consider an Intel CPU either i3 2100 or i5 2500K or anything inbetween

ok so for now i will get gtx 560 ti and psu! later M5A99X EVO with 955be and some ddr3 ram! but can gtx 560 run on my current mobo? (p5n-e-si)
