    building computer, i have a question about proccessors


    ok, im planning on building a gaming computer
    and im looking for mother boards and proccessors.

    my question is:
    the proccessor i want Newegg.com - AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+ 3.1GHz 1MB L2 Cache Socket AM2 89W Dual-Core Processor - Processors - Desktops
    has Hyper Transports 2000MHz

    and the motherboard Newegg.com - BIOSTAR A770 A2+ AM2+/AM2 AMD 770 ATX AMD Motherboard - AMD Motherboards
    has FSB 2600MHz Hyper Transport (5200 MT/s)

    is this proccessor compatible with the motherboard, does hyper transport matter in compatibility?

    thanx

    What you're looking for is the "socket," as in "socket AM2." (Socket AM2 is used by most recent AMD processors.) As you can see, the processor needs socket AM2, and the motherboard supports socket AM2, so the motherboard and the processor will mesh without a problem.

    Hyper transport: the higher the better for performance.

    However, it's not important to compatibility.
