Abit Fatal1ty AA8XE Intel Socket 775 ATX Motherboard / PCI Expess / Audio / USB 2.0 & Firewire / Dual Gigabit LAN / Serial ATA

What kind of processor goes into a socket 775? Pentium 4? Can I get an AMD CPU for this motherboard?

That board uses the P4 775. It cannot support an AMD chip. BTW the atx connector will use a 24 pin rather than a 20 pin connector. Make sure you have the correct ps for that board.

I assume its a good gaming board, but do Pentiums do gaming as well as AMD?

And what did you mean by correct ps?

In a benchmark, you MIGHT see a slight lead by AMD64 chips, however in the real world both work well.

Something you might want to think about; the P4 775s are based on the prescott core. The prescotts run hot; 55C+ is normal. The AMD64s run cool; the 3500+ that I am typing this on is running at 31C. That is running a stock hsf.

Yes, Abit is a quality mfg.

Yeah, so I will probably just go with the AMD64... This is my first AMD machine, and i'm happier with it then I have ever been with any Intel PC. Whats the best "gamer" AMD64 mobo?

Go with either abit, asus, or soltek. If you want the most overclocking ability, then go abit.
