and sorry i forgot to also ask...your first email Proclaimer, would that motherboard be able to use 4gb mem DDR3 and either of those graphic cards.as long as the motherboard can then i can always upgrade it later on ^_^
The board will support both the AM2 and AM3 architecture, the main difference being support for the AM3 processors' integrated memory controller, which supports DDR3 memory in addition to DDR2. The AM2 did not support DDR3.
As for the OS, if you buy Windows 7 Retail you will get both the x32 and the x64 bit discs in the box. I use x64 and new games run perfectly well on that OS in my rig.
The benefit of the x64 OS is that you can then add more than 4gb of memory to the system. The x32 OS will only support 4 gb memory. The board you reference will support 8gb.
Win 7 though if I recall correctly will use about 1.5gb memory just to load up. (it will run with just 1gb mem on the system but their definition of 'run' and my definition of run is quite different) So perhaps if you do not play very old games, then x64 is the way ahead.
