Default Re: this vs that

Argh, Bulldozer will NOT be using a slot and AM3+ CPU's are already confirmed not to work in AM3 mobos unfortunately. It's AM3+ so that you can use AM3 CPU's in the newer mobo... say if your old one dies and you can't upgrade your CPU just yet or something like that. There are certain barriers which prevent bulldozer from working in AM3.

If you want upgradeability with AMD now... buy C32 or G34 I guess.
