im planing on getting a : Gigabyte MA790FX-DS5 AMD 790FX Socket AM2+ Motherboard
But i dnt wanna have to rebuy my CPU or RAM, I gotta AMD Athlon 64 X2 5200+
and 2 sticks of 1GB DDR2 667mhz/PC5300
will the old stuff work on the new Motherboard?
(you may have seen my other post :P the GPU aint arrived yet but 2 moz is the big day XD)
I think you're making a very good move here. If you can live with your current cpu and ram, you can drop an AM3 45nm quad core and DDR2-1066 in that board later on. If AMD follows the same path in the CPU department that their Radeon 4800 series video cards have, I think the 45nm AM3's will be well worth the wait.
