Hey i am trying to help a friend to look for the best cpu in his budget so his 560 ti does not bottleneck.
here is his mobo

http://reviews.cnet.com/motherboards/asus-m4a785-m-moth...;subnav

I recommended this http://www.aztekcomputers.com/HDZ940XCJ4DGIBP-AMD-21397...

He's said no that this is better http://www.google.com/products/catalog?hl=en&q=Phenom+I...

I said no that one wouldn't work because that was a am3 cpu and he has a am2+ mobo and also said that his mobo supported that cpu when its clearly a am2+ mobo

I am on the intel side so I don't really get the amd cpu's

So what are your thought's on what best for the am2+ platform and would a am3 go into a am2+ socket

Thank you for your input

An AM3 cpu can be used on an AM2+ board, but the only downside is you are stuck with ddr2 ram, which AM3 motherboards introduced.
