  1. That an Intel mother boad so you need a new one to install an AMD chip
  2. sorry to say but that mobo is a LGA 775 that only supports core 2 duo and quad INTEL cpu's

    hmm, you can:
    a) buy a new computer, build one
    b) get a new mobo plus RAM
    c) buy a core 2 duo/quad cpu
  5. ok i will buy a new mobo plus 8gb ddr3 ram! thanks!!
  6. 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

    no thats also an intel mobo
    get this: http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/AMD_AM3Plus/M5A99X_EVO/
  8. yeah sorry i noticed it later! im gonna get this mobo! thanks for your help guys!!
  9. one more question! this mobo http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/AMD_AM3Plus/M5A99X_EVO/#specifications will be ok with gtx 560 ti right?
    beacause i read some bad news about it
  10. 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
  11. 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)
  12. Yes it can
