I was thinking about upgrading to an AM2+ quadcore on my current board but i may not depending on the performance.
*This message refers to my question. as listed from my mobo manufacturer (gigabyte)
Note: If you install AMD AM2+ CPU on AM2 motherbord, the system bus speed will downgrade from HT3.0(5200MHz) to HT1.0(2000 MT/s) spec; however, the frequency of AM2+ CPU will not be impacted. Please refer "CPU Support List" for more information.
I'm not exactly sure how AMD's FSB/HT, or whatever you want to call it, works in this case. The new CPU runs at 3600MHz but my board runs at 1000MHz Hyper Transport (2000 MT/s). Will there be a performance drop if i use this board instead of a HT3 (5200MHz) board.
My main concern is gaming
edit: hello forumers btw. any help is appreciated.
