- works on your current motherboard
- will move forward to AM3+ when you are ready
(has both DDR2 and DDR3 memory controller operation)
- will run (way) cooler and clock (way) higher than your original 9600BE
It also goes on sale quite frequently BUT is EOL and may disappear without notice (leaving you hanging)
