I have the Asus M3a32-MVP WiFi deluxe mother board with the AM2 CPU chip. i have 2 Xfx 9800 GTX Sli ready cards for graphics and a Fatality sound card made by creative. I'm running the suggested corsair memory which is 4G 2+2. Every time I try to start the system up I get the warning beeps and in 15 sec it turns off. I tried another memory type and it stayed on but no picture. the memory I tried to run first is from the Dominator series. How can i get my dream machine running. Help please :.(

You should get a quad core processor, with a minimum of 3 to 4 gigs of ram, and an asus SLI or crossfire Motherboard. This and a nice 1 terrabite drive can be done for under $500.00, unfoutunatelly, thats just the way they make it. I PLAY cod4, and I run a dual core with 2 gigs of ram and a $300.00 asus MB, with twin 7900 video cards in sli. and it just about runs it, the new games are processor and ram intense, let alone video cards. I would suggest a single card if cost is a factor, you can always add a second or even a third card later. But the you don't want to be the slowest guy playing, especially if you like first person multiplayer shooters
Your existing CPU will not work with that motherboard. The AM2+/AM2 processor slot is for AMD processors only. For this motherboard, you will need one of the following processors: Phenom FX / Phenom / Athlon 64 FX / Athlon 64 X2
unfortunately, this board does not appear to have slots for upgrading its graphic card.
CPU Socket Type
Phenom FX / Phenom / Athlon 64 FX / Athlon 64 X2
NV Geforce 7025 / nForce 630a chipset
Number of Memory Slots
Maximum Memory Supported
Max LAN Speed
According to all of my availableresource's the processor needs an AM2+ socket but your board has an AM2 socket. So I would contact the manufacturer and ask them just to be safe, but I am sure that the board you have has an AM2 socket for the CPU.
