I am putting together a system, and I am not sure if this CPU will be compatible with the motherboard. I know, it is a little dated, but the price point is what we can afford at this time. What confuses me at this point is the whole FSB/1000MHz Hyper Transport (2000 MT/s) thing...
I can't seem to find, or at least understand if the CPU I have chosen is correct, spec wise.
Here is the CPU - AMD Athlon X2 5800+ 3.0ghz 1MB SOCKET AM2 ADA5800IAA5DO CPU OEM
And here is the mobo - Foxconn M61PMV AM2+/AM2 NVIDIA GeForce 6100 Micro ATX AMD
I also noted this in neweggs specs - "*Designed for low power CPU's 95w and lower." This CPU is listed at 89 watt. Still under the limit, but close? Or is that considered okay?
And, am I okay on the specs otherwise, FSB, etc.?
Thanks for putting up with my noob questions!
