    Yes it will work that motherboard is AM3+.

    AMD AM3+ FX™/Phenom™ II/Athlon™ II/Sempron™ 100 Series Processors
    Supports AM3+ 32 nm CPU
    Supports CPU up to 140 W
    AMD Cool 'n' Quiet™ Technology

    what are you doing with this computer?
  2. regular things and gaming.will i get full performance
  3. Meh it's ok. If your main purpose is gaming though I would go with an I5. Both can do do everyday stuff so it comes down to gaming and the I5 is one of the best CPU's for that. Also you will want to get a good video card.
  4. Am just a casual gamer.Also am on tight budget.will fx8320 get full performance on m5a97?
  5. Best answer
    good cpu and a good board totally compatible. It is capable of more than casual gaming you can drive top end cards with it for the commonly used resolutions and you'd love it for what it can do.the i5 is better, no doubt but the difference is marginal.

    only thing that you must ensure is buy a recent board and not from a place which is like stock clearing them coz those might not have updated BIOS for Vishera support out of the box.
