well i emailed biostar and asked if the phenom ii 965 would work and they said no. only cuz its soemthing to do with the 965 being on a dual power plane design and the 9950 is only single. they told me to look at supported cpu on their site and they didnt even have the 9950 which is what im using now. so idk if i should believe them
I know what they are talking about, many boards have an issue where the CPU gets stuck on 800MHz if it is dual PP. What GPU (graphics card) are you using?
o i am playing it pretty decently but i am a perfectionist lol.i want the best i can get. skyrim actually runs worse than bf3. i get stuttering alot. but average fps for bf3 is 40 and i can run all high settings except AA,AO,motion blur on. so pretty decent i guess. i get fps drops in skyrim when turning to around 3 fps then it jumps back to 40-50
Depending on what other hardware you have, LGA 1155 board and CPU along with ram (presuming you are on DDR2), reusing the other hardware.
im trying to avoid intel because of the price of a intel system. even the i5 is alot.
I3 is not and competes with the faster X4 Phenoms in gaming. Then again a fast X4 and a AM3+ board is not a bad combination.
i feel like a general computer with an i3. its only dual core. i hate that. i want something better for my money. i have been looking at the fx series but hear alooot of bad about them. what is the deal? they cant tbe that bad right? i mean i dont care about benchmark scores. only gaming performance
