Thanks 95black... I was not aware that you could do a BIOS
update to make AM3 work. I do agree that 800MHz is fast
RAM but I really like my 1066 lol.
By the way, I believe the Sapphire Radeon HD 4670, if it is
still there on Newegg.com... is about $90.00 USD. You could
always get a cheap version of it but your performance
would severely suffer, as it would likely be a 64-bit architecture
and would have slower memory. The Radeon HD 4350 512 MB
I used was slower than my 256 MB Radeon HD 2600 from my old
computer so I sold it on craigslist. I'm assuming it's because
the 4350 was 64-bit and the 2600 was 128-bit. Also, the
core clock was faster on the 4350 (650 MHz vs. 600 MHz) but
the memory was slower (650 MHz effective vs. 800 MHz effective).
I should not have bought that card in the first place.
Here's a motherboard that supports AM3, AM2+ AND AM2, just
in case you have never updated BIOS before and don't
trust yourself with it:
Newegg.com - GIGABYTE GA-M68M-S2P AM3/AM2+/AM2 NVIDIA GeForce 7025/nForce 630a chipset Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
I was lookin at it for a while and I think it would be an OK board,
but keep in mind, as I read in one of their reviews, that even
though it says DDR2 1066 MHz that you cannot change the
voltages to work as 1066 and it will only recognize it as 800 MHz.
So just buy 800 MHz RAM and save yourself a little bit of money.
A very cheap board too.
Good luck again, and thanks again 95Black you helped me too.
