I read on a tomshardware forum post that an AM3 chip such as the Phenom 965 is compatible with AM3+. I just wanted to confirm this becase AM3 is a dead socket and was wondering if I could just get an AM3+ board and be happy for the next year or two.
What a board am3 is not compatible with bulldozer cpus or piledriver ones. You said you want a mobo am3+ to go with your 965 be, so it will be compatible with that cpu and ready for any of the recent amd cpus.
Oh, the first guy meant am3+ BOARDS are compatible with AMD CHIPS, I feel stupid, thanks
