I'm looking to upgrade a few things, specifically my motherboard, ram and install an SSD.

Looking at the motherboards available to me I like the look of GIGABYTE F2A85X-UP4 AMD A85X, but I can't upgrade my CPU at the moment (AMD Phenom II X4 965). I'd like to know if this CPU will work on this motherboard.

Thanks for any help.

No, that board has a FM2 socket. You need an AM3+ socketed motherboard.

Thanks, that saved me from a costly error.

So if I'm looking for an upgrade is it worth going to an AM3+ board? Will that support better CPUs than what I have down the line?

If so what is the best AM3+ board around at the moment?
