  1. They do exist, like this one http://www.asrock.com/mb/NVIDIA/N68C-S%20UCC/?cat=Specifications but if you have an AM2+ CPU, it won't work with DDR3 RAM. The integrated memory controller of the AM2+ CPU's only supports DDR2 RAM.

    Depending on which one and if it's used or new, that's a good deal.

    I don't like how they guarantee it to be unlocked to a quad (there are never any guarantees with that, no matter what anyone says), but at least they say it's new (although that's kind of a lie, since they tested it).

    If you can find a Phenom II X4 965BE (or even a 945), that would be good.

    Intel is great, but it sounds like you have a tight budget, so I'd stick with AMD, unless you can stretch your budget.

    That's still an X3 "guaranteed" to unlock to an X4.

    oh :fou:

    Wow, I'm actually wrong on that one. The "B" designation shows up for some unlocked CPU's, and that confused me, but I think that really is an X4. http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/K10/AMD-Phenom%20II%20X4%20B93%20-%20HDXB93WFK4DGI.html
