    hi I'm hoping some one can help me out i was planning to build new pc and was going to use asus Z10PE-D16 WS mother board witch is a duel processor mother board and has loads of pci(e)  x16 slots but ive been told that they ant compatible with the processor I want to use

    I want to use 2 AMD FX-9590 Black Edition Octa Core CPU Socket (AM3+ 4.7GHz 16MB 220W I don't want to us xeon or i7 as this will blow my entire budget just on processors.

    my plan is to build the basics needed for a working computer and upgrade once I can get back into work.

    does any one know of a duel processor workstation mother board that has loads of pci(e) x16 slots and that is compatible with the am3+ processors ?

    No CPUs need to support the functionality to put more than one in a motherboard. AMD consumer CPUs do not have this feature.

    The FX9590 is also one of the worst processors even a cheap i5 or i7 beats it pretty much all the time while using 3x less power.

    If you have a small budget then get a 5820k and a single socket motherboard or maybe stick with Z170 platform.
