AMD AM2+/AM2 Processor Compatible Based on the AMD 785G and SB710 chipset, the Gigabyte GA-MA785GM-US2H motherboard supports AMD’s AM3/AM2+/AM2 processors to provide unprecedented computing power to match the performance levels you are looking for.

The maximum supported amount of RAM is 16GB. If you add more RAM I would suggest purchasing more of the Skill modules which you have already installed. This way you will have the best match for running dual channel.



Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Thanks dc3 for your help. It make sense and I will save some money.
My brain is not working properly after my open heart surgery.
Before my surgery I was building computers for fun for all my friends and family.
Thanks again.

Hi, the best CPU that you can upgrade to is the AMD Phenom II X6 1045Twhich is a 6 core processor for $110 at Tiger Direct. I strongly suggest you update the Bios to F12f first before installing the processor. Also for the ram upgrade, do you currently have a single 2GB ram stick or is 2 x 1GB and is Windows 64bit?

Well your best bet is to get another 2 x 1GB and make it 4GB although Windows will only detect around 3.25GB.

It might be worth just installing two 1GB modules to make 3GB. This will save you money and you probably wouldn't notice any difference in performance.

I would suggest that you match the specs of your other modules so that it will run in dual channel. This makes an appreciable difference in performance.
