Re: Best CPU for Gigabyte GA-970A-DS3 (rev. 3.0)?

Many thanks for the reply

I was hoping the CPU would be up to the job, there is a little room for OC, but I've never needed to before.

What is the 'E' suffix for? FX-8320E

They have them at my local supplier (Scan) for £121

Hi, I see you went for the 7750+ cpu. Got mine up and running last night, I went for an ASUS M3A78-CM board, but it has an AMD chipset so its no use to you.

I am in the same situation as you, although I have plumped for the Athlon 7750+ Black Editon CPU but I cant decide on a mobo to go with it. I chose the CPU because I read about its easy O/C potential. Although I think my FX-55 is still a great gaming cpu.

Quite impressed so far with Windows 7 64bit beta, far more responsive than Vista, installed in less than 20 mins. Still mooching around, AVG worked straight off, IE seems fine, needed a flash player update but only took a min. Not sure if I'm running in SLI though. Still playing. AMD FX-55 MSI K8Nsl...

Thanks for your advice, I've decided not to bother with Vista atall, I have just downloaded the Beta of Windows 7 and I'm gonna have a play with that instead. I may wait a while before I build my new pc.
