Tech help needed with Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD3 AM3 AMD Motherboard/ silverline 996770
I was wondering if someone might be able to help me with a techy question. I am thinking of buying a AMD Fx 6200 processor but want to check the compatability with the memory i have got already Mushkin silverline 996770 2x 4gb pc3 10666 9 9 924 1..5v would this work on this board ?
Many thanks in advance.

Hi, yes that CPU will be fine with it.
May I suggest getting the FX-6100, the FX-6200 is just overclocked higher, which is easily reached by an overclock. The FX-6200 is based on the same chip as the FX-6100.
Overclocking with that board could reach the same clock speed as FX-6200, due to the chipset and 8+2 phase, so it will handle a good overclock. No point wasting money.
