there is one answer i want to know. right now i have a gigabyte 970a-d3 mobo. and i also have a fx 6100 in it right now and lets say i want to get a fx 6200 would i also need a new mobo or can i use the same motherboard but with a new cpu?
You can keep the motherboard
im not going to get a new cpu just something i wanted to know if you can do.
just for future reference, you would go to the manufacturers page for that specific motherboard and reference their cpu support list to see what cpu's are supported.
