Can I reuse this processor AMD Phenom II X6 1055T Thuban 2.8GHz Socket AM3 125W Six-Core Desktop Processor HDT55TFBGRBOX

with this Motherboard

GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3 AM3+ AMD 990FX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128514

Wife is looking to upgrade to SATA6 & USB3 on a budget. Just curious if she can buy a new SSD drive & this motherboard & still reuse her processor & ram.

Yes, it's compatible with that motherboard.

+1

It will work just fine.

However I would spend the little extra($12) on the UD-5 board as the Northbridge on the UD-5 and UD-7 have better heatsinks and will run alittle cooler.

I'm still using this CPU in my gaming PC and it has been a champ for me for years. And yea it should work nicely with that board.
