If I remember right the first FX chips were based off of a Opteron. Then later one when the moved to 939 they became based off of the Athlon64.
One last thing. Where should I go [online] to find out information about RAIDs and Controller cards? I'm thinking of when I get all the parts together, I'll do a Striped RAID 0 with my SATA 250 gig and a new 320 gig SATA I'm buying for my birthday and will install down the road [birthday is Jan 14th]. Does the Asus AV8 mobo support RAID? If not, who makes the best controllers? Sorry if I'm using the wrong technical terms, btw. Thank you so much for you guys' support.
