My System Specs


The upgrade path is nice...

When I bought my M5A97 originally, I was running an original Phenom I quad core. Then I put in a Phenom II Quad Core, a Phenom II Hex Core, and finally a Vishera 8350. Add in an 8150, and that's four processor generations, so far.

EDIT: Wait, actually the original Phenom's weren't compatible with AM3 platforms. So, make that three generations.
