Well, upgrading the hardware is always a welcomed idea :D

your keyword is: Benchmarks

 

This is a page where you can appreciate some

 

I invite you to find benchmarks from your motherboard mixed with every CPU you have in mind, see for yourself which one suits you better.

I'm thinking about taking advantage of the awesome deals on Newegg on cyber monday (monday after thanksgiving). I'm not that familiar with motherboards, and i'm wondering what certain elements are going to hold my performance back?

 

I'm going to build an AMD setup, probably with the new 8 core 4.0ghz processor (i might do the black edition six core though)

w/ around 8Gigs of ram or so

and i probably will get a 1Gig graphics card

and a decent size SSD

 

My main concern is making sure that if i get a sweet processor, that my motherboard will hold it back.

 

Advice?

Keep in mind the frontside bus (system bus) speed because this is where most bottlenecks occur in processing. So you could have a blazingly fast CPU connecting with a slower frontside bus speed, and that would have a definite effect your performance.

@Black Rabbit

 

Well as helpful as this link is, it really makes me dream more than anything, considering I had to CTRL +F to find any AMD cpu in the list... LOL

Seriously though, I'm happy that the FX 8350 i'm considering made the list...at number 59 of the high end list.
