the am3 board will accept any am3 cpu from an athlon 215 to an amd phenomx4 965 and the phenom x6 is slotted for the am3 platform and where does socket 775 come in ? and a fast dual core will choke when muliticore optimized games become more prominent no matter how fast the dual core is
Ebuyer prices are not bad. Try google product search, but ofc is preferable to buy all from the same place. I've got from ebuyer before and they are fast etc. Once the delivery tracking from parcel force changed to tried to deliver even though I was completely certain they hadn't been. Rang ebuyer and they rang their contact at parcel force, and as a major client they told them it wasn't good enough and they had better sort it out, which they did within an hour. So I like ebuyer.
