Are AMD FX Chips Backwards compatible with AM2+ Boards? I have a very late AM2+ ASUS M4A785D-M PRO motherboard produced in 2010. I can't find information on the web, it just says AM3+ compatible, but i know AM3 CPUs are compatible with AM2+ motherboards.

I suppose it doesn't even matter anyway there's not much of an increase from Phenom ii x4 if it's just gaming.

No. FX chips aren't even compatible with AM3 boards. Just AM3+.
