    Brisbane is an AMD architecture family.

    There are no motherboards that are specific to only Brisbane as that would be a bad ting.

    The board you are asking about Supports AM2 and AM2+ CPUS, which means it supports ANY AM2 and AM2+ CPUs x1 ~ X4 cores. Need to watch the wattage limit thou... lower end boards tend to have problems with 100+ watt CPUs (most X4s are 125)

    CPU info: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_AMD_Athlon_X2_microprocessors

    The picture is clearer now, Thanks. I am trying to find drivers for this board: GeForce 8200, AMD AM2/+ M1-A785-8209, and hopefully a manual or pdf file for it. The XFX website is not helpfull at all.

    Its not the drivers, its the BIOS.

    If your board doesn't support AM3+ CPUs, you'll be restricted to the X2 7850... if there is a BIOS upgrade for that chip. Your board isn't that old... a year or so.

    I guess i was not specific enough on my earlier thread. I just got this board w/ no driver cd or manual. Need to find both in order to get a proper start with the system.

    So why not go to the website of the manufacture? Pretty much all of them have manuals and drivers...

    This is their support section: http://www.xfxforce.com/en-us/Help/Support.aspx
    Which stupidly requires you to register before access to files (BS) - makes sure I won't be buying their products.

    Hmmm... I think I screwed up a bit. My last response makes no sense! I was replying to another post that had to do with an older nForce motherboard and got the two mixed up.
