Hi,

Would anyone know which is the fastest AMD cpu I can install in a Ga-m78sm-s2h ? I think I won't be able to use any of the FX chips right?

Thanks,

That being an AM2+ board, you should check if there's a BIOS update available for AM3 phenom II cpus if there is one, then you can go with the Phenom II listed here: http://www.amd.com/us/products/desktop/processors/pheno...
AM3 cpus are backward compatible with AM2+ boards

it is hard to recommend... you may want to buy a new tech CPU+MOBO combo for your own sake...

thats am2+ cpu, you can still use phenom ii 955 or newer but we will not recommend it
this is a list you are looking for

thanks everyone. I was hoping I could use the multi core FX chips and make a vmware box but I will use my setup for a htpc instead.
