[QUOTE=lunny09;2543052]I have the MA770-UD3 motherboard and it’s rev 1.0, I want to upgrade my CPU but the CPU I want is the Phenom II x4 955, am I right in thinking I can use this AM3 CPU now that there is the F8 BIOS, I’ve heard a lot about it not working because it’s Rev.1?
And does it matter what wattage it is?

Without knowing what your PS is brand name or off brand. I would say if it doesn’t have a reliable name behind it I would make sure it can support the board as well. You will have to go to gigabyte site and put in your motherboard information to find out what CPU is compatible with your system. I looked but since there is limited specs you posted you will have to do the homework and go to the motherboard site and see what you can and can’t upgrade in the way of CPU and Bios…
