My Advice: wait 2 weeks, get a much better processor (Athlon64 X2 or a conroe) at the same price. The AM2 sockets are drastically decreasing in price and the conroes are coming out on the 27th.

You're saying that x2's that will cost around 110 will be better than the 3500?

from what the reading has shown a 3800 X2 is going to be around the 160-70 USD area... possibly less depending on the store and yes a dual core is better than a 3500, for that reason alone. Dual Core. I'm having a problem with your link, so I can't see the mobo you picked out, but if you want the 3500 and as long as the mobo has all the requirements you need, then go for it.

Edit: Since I have fixed the problem, you didn't pick a mobo...
what are the specs for the rest of your system? That will help in trying to help pick out a mobo.

Dell 4K S2817Q / Logitech Z-680 / Func MS3 Mouse / Corsair K70
NZXT Source 530 / i7-3770K / Corsair H100 / ASRock Z77 Extreme4 / SoundBlaster Recon3d
Samsung 850 PRO 512GB SSD/Seagate 1TB/2TB/WD 2TB
4x4GB Corsair Vengeance 2133 / PNY GTX 980 ti/ Seasonic M12II 850W

Since no one here addressed the question:




BIOSTAR TForce6100-939

I have used that last biostar and like it a lot - apparently it wont support X2 ?

I have an ASUS A8N-SLi and I like it a lot too.

i'll go for the a8n5x because it's x2 supported and soon the x2's would drop their price.

I am the yellow one.
