Question about the am3 and am3+ socket and my processor
Hello, I decided that i would buy AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition processor which on newegg says that it needs the Am3 socket. therefore i dont know if Am3+ socket will be good for this processor too. because the AM3+ socket is newer i guess i could upgrade my processor late on? thanks

You didn't mention the motherboard make and model. Did you check your motherboard CPU compatibility list? Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition should be on it.
You can run AM3 CPUs in AM3+ motherboard. And have an upgrade path for future upgrading.
yeah well thats what i was needing thanks, and im going to buy a motherboard so i guess a mother board with a socket AM3+ will be good for this processor ? and then later on i can upgrade to a better processor and the am3+ will be there.
