I have a EVGA 133-K8-NF43-AX Mainboard sitting around forawhile and am looking to finally buil another system. My question is what is the best CPU to install on this board. I am looking at the AMD Athlon 64 X2 4600+ Dual Core Processor S939 Manchester if the motherboard supports it. I am haveing a tough time finding out what this board will accept, as well as if there are BIOS updates for this board!

Or if it is best to go with a different Mainboard altogether!

I have checked that page out before I posted here! I do know it states the MB supports Supports Dual-Core, Athlon 64 FX, and Athlon 939-pin processors 4000 ...

My question is does it support a higher CPU 4400, 4600, 4800 or even the 5000 even with a Bios update , I searched that site and could not find the information I was looking for! Which is why I posted here!

well, it's not going to support the 5000 because there isn't a socket 939 version of it.

It would help if evga had a cpu support list, but in this case, I don't think you'll have a problem.

I can see no reason why It wouldnt he able to handle it, but even if It doesnt I belive it would still run the processor atleast at the motherboards limits.
