  1. The best quad core you can put on your board is an Phenom ii x4 975.

    The best quad core is a Phenom ii x6 1100T

    These CPUS require the latest BIOS update to work the best -

    Here is a list of supported CPUs - http://uk.gigabyte.com/support-downloads/cpu-
    support-popup.aspx?pid=3323

    Here is the board's website - http://uk.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=3323#
  2. Google is so great. Pick whatever processor you want, the cpu compatibilty list lists every AM2/AM2+/AM3 processor going except the newer AM3+ FX's. The Phenom II 955/965 BE are worth a peek.

  3. Goto http://www.gigabyte.com and use the search box in the upper left corner. Type in model number GA-MA74GM-S2 and then find the version number that matches your mobo. There will be a CPU support list button on the right side of the sceren. That will tell you what CPU's the mobo supports.
  4. Phenom II 955.
